"On the Cleanest River in Italy"

The river running through this town, the Tirino, is the cleanest river in Italy. It is alive with shrimp and trout and the countryside around it is as green as any park. This water is what the town was built around. In the Middle Ages it attracted a Benedictine settlement which built the Church of Santa Maria di Cartignano in 1020. The church is now almost reduced to rubble but you can still see the main doorway, the rose window and the bell tower with webbed arches as well as a few sculptures inside. The frescos that covered the whole apse are now housed in the Museo Nazionale Abruzzes in Aquila. As well as the church you can still see the castle which was built around 1000 and is well preserved since it is a private residence. The river was also a determining factor of the industry that developed in the town. In 1902 when they began to pipe water out, the first chlorinating facilities were started here. The old buildings of the company that later became the Società Italiana di Elettrochimica and the living areas for the workers built in 1906 are now part of industrial archaeology. From Pescara take the A25, Bussi exit.
