This is the retail outlet for Luigi D'Amico goods, the factory which makes biscuits and confectionery. It started in the 19th Century, selling other products as well as food, such as fishing nets and other fishing items. This is practically symbolic of the story of Pescara, as it was built as a simple fishing village, located in a strategic place that made it worth building a Bourbon fortress here. The name of Luigi D'Amico is linked to typical sweets from the city especially il parozzo, a chocolate covered sweet with an almond cake inside and liqueur. It is a sweet version of the bread of Abruzzese peasants, that was called pan rozzo. Gabriele D'Annunzio suggested the name of this mythical reproduction of the rural world, and Luigi Antonelli, art critic, wrote a story about it. Armando Cermignani, a ceramic maker, created the design and the colors. There is also a song dedicated to it. They also make the Baci di Dama, hazelnut sweets and chocolate covered sweets called Senzanome ('without name'). In the rooms, paintings by Tommaso Cascella are displayed and a series of photos of historical characters who have tried the produce, including Mussolini, Macario and Nuvolari.
