Penne is an italian town in the province of Pescara, in the Abruzzo region, in the mid-southern Italy. According to the last census in 2014 the population was 12.451. In 2012 Penne succeeded to join the prestigious club of the "Most beautiful towns of Italy" Penne traces back its origin to the Mid Neolithic period; as a pre-roman town, it was the ancient capital of "Vestini" populations and during the roman age it was known as "Pinna Vestinorum". Penne is today among the most important towns in the Vestini area, sitting in the hills between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea and opening the way for the National Park of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga through the Regional Natural Reserve "Lake of Penne"The widespread use of bricks in every historical building and paving gave Penne the appellation of “Città del mattone”, i.e. the "Town of bricks". In 2006, Penne was awarded the silver medal of civic merit for the World War II events. The economy of Penne is driven mainly by tourism, agriculture, the regional hospital and Brioni, the Italian fashion house whose suits are still hand sewn by Pennese women.HistoryThe town is very ancient, having been a seat of government of the Vestini people starting around 300 BC. In around 89 BC, the Vestini (along with other Italic tribes) were defeated by the Romans in the Social War, and became citizens of Rome. The town was known as Pinna during the time of the Roman Republic.
