They look like little spiders spread around the south coast in the Abruzzo region, South Italy. They are called trabocchi and they are ancient structures similar to pile dwelling. They were built a few centuries ago by fishermen…who were too scared to leave the coast and go into the blue water to fish.
When I saw Katia and Matteo’s photos from Acromatico, in trabocco San Salvo, I completely felt in love with these structures which were completely unknown to me until I saw these stunning pictures!
They got married last summer and they decided to take some pictures in one of these unusual areas in their region. So lucky I found them!!!
If you would like to discover these little jems, you would need to head towards the Chieti province (between Francavilla and San Salvo), where the coast is wild and silent. Here among wild brooms, green olive trees and vineyards you can see these strange creatures appearing from the sea.
They are concentrated in the area from Punta Acquabella (in Ortona) to Vasto. Some of them are: Trabocco Fosso Canale in San Vito Marina; Trabocco Punta Cavalluccio, Punta Isolata and Punta Tufano in Rocca San Giovanni; Trabocco Pesce Palombo and Punta Rocciosa in Fossacesia.
Italo and Ale (Acromatico) are South Florida husband and wife wedding photographers. Italo is Italian and Ale is Chilean, two awesome cultures mixed together making a great team! Thanks for sharing these nice pictures!!! All these wedding pictures here.
