VISIT PESCARA WITH THE EYES OF GABRIELE D'ANNUNZIO

written by Redazione Visit Italy

Ostuni città bianca

Gabriele D'Annunzio was born on March 12, 1896 in the beautiful Pescara; he was a poet and one of the most important intellectuals in Italy, and not only of the century. An Eclectic and controversial personality, he embodied the ideal of the decadent, narcissistic, hedonistic, sensual, and superhuman artist, living a life over the top.

His birthplace is now a museum on Corso Manthonè in the Pescara area that still has retained its characteristics as a small fishing village. The house consists of nine halls, containing antique furniture and objects of the writer and his family. Interesting are the educational panels that report news on the poet's family, enriched by references to literature and photography.  In the house of the poet the countries and places of Abruzzo that D'Annunzio has treated in his literary works and the artists who have been linked with feelings of deep friendship, as the painter Francesco Paolo Michetti and components of the Cenacle of Francavilla, are also illustrated. Each room is illustrated with a caption that repeats those pieces of "Night" in which the poet recalls with words full of feeling the environments, the objects and people dear to him.

Also in Pescara, do not miss a visit to Government House, which houses "The Daughter of Jorio”, a grand canvas by Francesco Paolo Michetti, which inspired the eponymous play by D'Annunzio. Walking around it is impossible not to notice the artistic beauty that inspired the poet such as the Cathedral of St. Cetteo, built in the 1930s, in addition to the sacred relics of the saint, an invaluable work of Guercino of the XVII century, and the Basilica of Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, erected in the eighteenth century neoclassical style, which preserves valuable works of local artists.

Visit Francavilla to cross the Pinewood remembered by D’Annunzio: next to the shore by fishing boats crossing the green Adriatic, on the beach which once went by the herds that migrate seasonally to Puglia (described in the poem September).

Impossible not to mention the old and beautiful sea port of Pescara, starting from the city centre with its coast, a succession of stunning beaches overlooking the sea, which is blue as the sky with which merges horizon.
