I wish I could attend, but unfortunately, I'll be teaching school. My blog is about our journey in purchasing our house in Villa Santa Maria. I think Abruzzo is an undiscovered gem in the world, and I hope my blog will help people discover it and the value it offers people. We must help L'Aquila rebuild! (www.anoldhouseinitaly.com)

Hi Kim, That's a shame, if you can help promote it through your lovely blog we'd all so appreciate it!
