"A Norman Town"

Some say that this was called Laurentum from the Roman era, but the town only reached its splendor in the 11th Century, when it was a Norman earldom. It had a castle and an abbey (Santa Maria in Piano). After the Norman period, it had many patrons throughout the centuries including the D'Aquino, the Afflitto, the Avalos, the Caracciolo, the Farnese, Alessandro de'Medici and Margherita of Hapsburg. It was oppressed until the 19th Century when it had a cultural and civil reawakening. There were liberal ideas and anti-Bourbon movements, a theater and the Casamarte Library was set up. The private collection gave life to the beautiful Ceramics Museum. The Museum of Oil and the History of Work, Industrial Archaeology and Craftsmanship is currently being built. From Pescara take the no. 16 road until Cappelle and from here the no. 151 road.
