Roccaraso is a town and comune in central Italy, in the province of L'Aquila in the Abruzzo region.HistoryThe town of Roccaraso dates back to around 1000 AD, and is located near the Rasinus stream, from which some believe it took its original name, Rasin Rocca. It developed as a farming village, inhabited by herdsmen and craftsmen, which guaranteed its people a peaceful and prosperous life. During the late 19th century, the opening of the rail link with Naples begins to bring the first tourists, attracted by the beauty of the natural environment, who were soon welcomed by various hotels that at that time were beginning to rise. A sharp setback came with the Second World War. Roccaraso was located right on the head of the Gustav line, the system of fortifications with which the Germans tried to stop the advance of the Allies after the landing at Salerno in September 1943. The town was completely destroyed by a bombing, which caused the loss of 'Interalia', a theater built in 1698, one of the oldest in Italy. The roccolani did not lose heart; after the end of the war the town returned back to everyday life and soon became one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy.Roccaraso is among the cities decorated for Valor for the War of Liberation that has been awarded the Gold Medal for Valor for the sacrifices of its people (which culminated in the massacre of Pietransieri) and its activities in the partisan struggle during the Second World War.
