Our March 2012 trip to Abruzzo captured by photographer Kateri Likoudis. The collection of images, in both color and black and white, using both film and digital technologies, presents Abruzzo's singular landscapes, introspective solitudes and wilderness, its villages plucked from another time, its continuing traditional vocations and relics of its ancient past. The book also explores some of the region's remarkable eateries, from farm restaurants and simple trattorie to ristoranti of extraordinary elegance.
Part of the proceeds from Roads to Tradition will go to support the Abruzzo-based non-profit Tratturo Magno, which is dedicated to natural and historic preservation in the region. Tratturo Magno works to encourage the continuation and expansion of Abruzzo's pastoral economy, to reclaim and maintain green pathways through the region (and into Molise and Puglia) and to restore historic churches, palazzi and monuments connected with this way of life. 70 pages, soft cover.
