Old traditional costumes from Abruzzo


Filed under Abruzzo, Culture

Have you ever thought about how your ancestors were?
Most probably you resemble them physically, but certainly they had different habits from yours.
Beginning with the way they used to dress:
that’s why we thought this picture gallery with some vintage prints depicting people of Abruzzo in their traditional costumes: just to help you to have of the appearance of your ancestors.
Thinking about the past is always an exercise in fantasy, but with some hint it becomes easier to move closer to reality.
In fact, every town and every village owned different costumes, but generally, the traditional costumes of the same region resembled each other in some way.

These are images taken from a valuable collection of rare prints of late 1700 and early 1800, when Italy still did not exist as a nation and Abruzzo was part of the “Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.” (regno delle Due Sicilie)
Little by little we will try to put all our collection online.
