As a part of Italy, Abruzzo has an area of 10,763 square km (4,156 sq mi) and 1.3 million people. It is made up of four provinces: L'Aquila, Teramo, Pescara, and Chieti, which are all cities. Western: It is about 80 km (50 miles) east of Rome. In the north, Abruzzo is next to the region of Marche. In the west and north-west, it is next to Lazio and then Molise, and in the south, it is next to Molise and the Adriatic Sea. In terms of geography, Abruzzo is split into two parts: a mountainous area in the west, which includes the Gran Sasso d'Italia, and a coastal area in the east, which includes beaches on the Adriatic Sea in the west.
When it comes to culture, language, history, and economy, Abruzzo is part of Southern Italy. But when it comes to where it is physically, it could also be part of Central Italy. ISTAT also thinks it's in southern Italy, partly because of Abruzzo's long history with the kingdoms of Sicily and Abruzzo, which were both part of Italy at one time.
More than any administrative region on the continent, the region has more national parks and nature reserves than any other. This has led to it being called "the greenest region in Europe." In addition to three national parks, there is also a regional park and 38 nature reserves that have been set aside to protect them. Some rare species, like the golden eagle, the Abruzzo chamois, the Apennine Wolf, and the Marsican brown bear, will be able to stay alive thanks to these things  More than 75% of Europe's animal species live in Abruzzo.  They also have one of Europe's southernmost glaciers, Calderone, in the area.
Primo Levi, an Italian diplomat and journalist who lived from 1853 to 1917, used the words forte e gentile (strong and kind) to describe the region and its people. As time went on, "Forte e gentile" became a catchphrase for people living in the area.
