Pescara

Pescara is the capital city of the Province of Pescara, in the Abruzzo region of Italy. It is the most populated city in Abruzzo, with 119,217 residents. Located on the Adriatic coast at the mouth of the Aterno-Pescara River, the present-day municipality was formed in 1927 joining the municipalities of the old Pescara fortress, the part of the city to the south of the river, Castellamare Adriatico, the part of the city to the north of the river; the surrounding area was formed into the province of Pescara. The main commercial street of the city is Corso Umberto I, which runs between two squares, starting from Piazza della Repubblica and reaching the seacoast in Piazza Primo Maggio; the rectangle that it forms with Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and Via Nicola Fabrizi is home of the main shopping district, enclosed in a driving restriction zone, where several of the best fashion shops are located. Corso Manthoné, the course of the old Pescara, for many years, been the center of the nightlife of the city.

City hall and the administration of the province are in Piazza Italia, near the river, in the area between here and the D'Annunzio University campus to the south, a business district has grown up over the years, while the Marina is situated to the immediate south of the mouth of the river. Pescara is served by an important international airport, the Abruzzo Airport, one of the major touristic ports of Adriatic Sea and Italy, the Port of Pescara. Pescara is situated at sea level on the Adriatic coast and has developed from some centuries BC onwards at the strategic position around the mouth of the Aterno-Pescara River; the coast is low and sandy and the beach extends, unbroken for some distance to both the north and the south of the river, reaching a width of 140 metres in the area around a pineta to the north. To the south the pine forest that once gave shade to bathers along much of the Adriatic coast, has disappeared near the beach, but remains within the Nature Reserve Pineta Dannunziana.

The urban fabric of the city spreads over a flat T-shaped area, which occupies the valley around the river and the coastal strip. To the northwest and the southwest, the city is expanding into the surrounding hills which were first occupied in the Neolithic period; the whole city is affected by the presence of groundwater, the level of which varies by up to a metre, being at its highest in spring due to snow melting in the mountains inland. The city is close to the mountains, the ski slopes of Passo Lanciano it only takes a 30 minutes drive. Pescara has a borderline Mediterranean climate and humid subtropical climate with hot summers and cool winters. Since it has only one summer month with less than 40 millimetres of rainfall, the city cannot be classified as Mediterranean. Not to mention, although there is a dry tendency in early summer, August is wetter than the winter month of February, unusual for the Mediterranean pattern; the average temperature is 24.5 °C in the warmest month. The lowest temperature recorded in the city was −13 °C on 4 January 1979.

The highest was registered on 30 August 2007 at 45 °C. Precipitation is low and concentrated in the late autumn. Pescara is a coastal city; when the wind is southwesterly, Pescara experiences a Foehn wind that reaches 100 km/h, causing a sudden increase in temperature and decrease in relative humidity, for that reason winters with temperatures that exceed 20 °C daily are not unknown. Under northeasterly winds Pescara suffers precipitation, weak, but can be much more intense if accompanied by a depression. From the north east comes winter weather from Siberia that, on average, brings abundant snowfalls every 3–4 years. In summer the weather is stable and sunny with temperatures that, thanks to the sea breeze exceed 35 degrees unless a southwesterly Libeccio is blowing. In summer, but in winter, the high humidity leads to morning and evening mist or haze. Pescara's origins precede the Roman conquest, it was founded to be the port of Vestini and Marrucini tribes to trade with the peoples of the Orient, a supporting role, held for centuries.

The name of both the town and the river was Aternum, it was connected to Rome through the Via Claudia Valeria and the Via Tiburtina. The main building was the temple of Jovis Aternium; the town was an important port for trade with the Eastern provinces of the Empire. In the Middle Ages it was destroyed by the Lombards. Saint Cetteus, the town's patron saint, was a bishop of the 6th century, elected to the see of Amiternum in Sabina in 590, during the pontificate of Gregory the Great, his legend goes that he was executed by the Lombards at Amiternum by being thrown off a bridge with a stone tied around his neck. In 1095 Pescara was a fishing village enriched with churches. In 1140 Roger of Sicily conquered the town, giving rise to a period in which it was destroyed by armies ravaging the Kingdom of Sicily; the name of Piscaria is mentioned for the first time in this period. Several seignors ruled over Pescara afterwards, including Rainaldo Orsini, Louis of Savoy and Francesco del Borgo, the vicar of king Ladislaus of Naples, who had the fortress and the tower built.
