ABRUZZO

The PNALM is an Italian National Park founded in 1922. 
The oldest in the Apennines, and the Italy's second declared park.
With snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear rivers and lush beech woodlands, the Abruzzo park in central Italy offers you the chance to observe some of the country's most iconic animals such as wolves, bears, Apennine chamois. Not to forget the big number of species living in the woods.

I visited this National Park for many years now.
During the long time of hiking, of wait, camouflaged inside a bush or hidden behind a rock, I have learnt to listen the nature and I've seen what I had never seen before.

Arrivammo al parcheggio del paese vicino al quale in sentiero ha inizio, parcheggiammo la macchina e ci preparammo ad intraprendere il percorso stabilito.
Partimmo e immediatamente il perco...

The following summer - in July 2016, to be exact - Nicolò and I made a second trip to the Abruzzo Park. We set off one Friday afternoon. The path we now passed along had been chosen for enjoying the breathtaking spectacle of the sun breaking over the mountains, its many glittering blades of lights reflected in the surface of Lake Barrea. 

We tackled the initial 300-meter incline that led us into the great valley, familiar to bo...

L’estate successiva, precisamente nel luglio del 2016, Nicolò ed io partimmo per una seconda escursione nel parco abruzzese.
Partimmo un venerdì pomeriggio. Raggiungemmo il sentiero scelto nel momento in cui il sole da dietro le montagne e il lago di Barrea ne rifletteva la luce in tante lame luccicanti che creavano uno spettacolo mozzafiato.
Affrontammo i 300 metri di dislivello e giungemmo così nella grande valle che già ci...
