On Saturday, we will visit Scanno Lake, which is located in Abruzzo, in the upper valley of the river Sagittarius, originated by a landslide from Mount Genzana, between 12.820 and 3.000 years ago, that crossed the river Tasso. It is located halfway between Villalago and Scanno, and is the largest natural lake in the region. We will spend the day hiking along the beautiful paths that are around the lake. We will get back from the hike and have a dinner in a local “agriturismo” on Scanno Lake.
On Sunday, we will hike in the morning and reach Frattura Vecchia, were we will have a BBQ. Frattura Vecchia is a ghost town that was abandoned in 1912 after a heart quake. “120 people were killed, mainly children and women, since adult men had relocated in the US or were following transhumance in Apulia. The village of Frattura was built on the divide (hence the name, since “frattura” here means rift, divide) that in prehistoric times was generated by an earthquake that blocked the Sagittario river and formed the lake of Scanno”.
