Scanno (mt. 1050 o.s.l.) is situated between the upper Sagittario valley and the National Natural Park of Abruzzo: it’s surrounded by a wonderful natural landscape culminating with its emerald green lake. The most ancient part of the village has medieval origins, it’s rich in monumental archs, churches and bell towers, ancient noble palaces and wonderful renaissance and baroque portals: immortalized by the photographs of Henry Cartier Bresson and Giacomelli, here every june takes place an important photographic contest. The local traditions are still very alive, with the patron saints feasts, the jewels manifacture with ancient designs, the tombolo lace, and the traditional costume still worn by the elderly women.
