Scanno is a town and comune in the province of L'Aquila, in the Abruzzo region of central Italy.GeographyThere are alleys and narrow streets. The town is bordered by Anversa degli Abruzzi, Barrea, Bisegna, Bugnara, Civitella Alfedena, Introdacqua, Opi, Pescasseroli, Pettorano sul Gizio, Rivisondoli, Rocca Pia, Villalago and Villetta Barrea.HistorySituated in the Sagittario Valley and encircled by the Majella mountains Scanno has been immortalised by photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson (1951) and Mario Giacomelli (1957 - 59) and, according to Edward Lear, was host to Italy’s most beautiful women (Illustrated excursions in Italy by Lear, Edward, 1846). Local legend has it that Scanno’s natural lake (Lago di Scanno - stocked with pike and perch and Abruzzo’s largest natural basin) was created by a feud between a white witch and a sorcerer; the lake marking the spot where the witch finally fell. For a brief period during World War II, former Italian president Carlo Azeglio Ciampi was a refugee in the town.
