  • My Abruzzo

    "My Abruzzo" is a column written by Teresa Mastrobuono. Teresa owns a house in Abruzzo, Italy, which she rents out to anyone who wants to experience the Abruzzese culture. She wants to give as many people as possible the experience of this extraordinary area, Abruzzo, which is so much like the Italy her Father knew about and from which his Father came. It is an experience he never had. To honor him she named the house for him: Casa da Carmine.

    The House That Dad Built
    My father gave me this house in Italy, although he doesn't know it. He is no longer earth-bound. I want to give as many people as possible the experience of this extraordinary area, Abruzzo, which is so much like the Italy he knew about and from which his father came.

    Italian Lessons
    A month in a new country can teach you a lot. Here are some things I've learned so far.

    My Paesani
    When asked what is the best part of this town (Castiglione Messer Raimondo), most guests say "the people". Indeed, they are rare and golden. They are what I will miss the most. Here is a sampling of some of them.

    Uncinetto and the Unskilled Hands
    The work is called "uncinetto" she told me: tiny, delicate crochet stitches that add up to doilies, blankets, hats, baby shoes, even an intricate rosary. I watched her needle dart in and out of nearly imperceptible holes, combining to magically weave flower or bird designs into the work. I knew I had to learn this craft.
