Tortoreto is a coastal town and comune of the province of Teramo in the Abruzzo region of Italy.It has two distinct parts. The old town is on a hill not far from the Adriatic Sea. The new part, usually referred to as Tortoreto Lido, is seaside and located next to SS 16.Tortoreto can be reached by direct rail service or by flying to the Pescara airport and then traveling 45km north.The comune of Alba Adriatica was created in 1956 by splitting it off from Tortoreto.ToponomyThe name of the town is due to the large presence of turtle doves (tortore) during the Middle Ages.Pope Gregory I, for example, noticed in a letter the large amount of these species of birds which used to live in this area. Later on, the town created on the top of the hills after the barbarian invasions started to be called Turturitus or Turturetum, and, eventually, the current denomination of Tortoreto came into common use.AdministrationSince 1995, the mayor of Tortoreto has been directly elected, along with a list of councillors which would constitute the mayor's majority within the city council.Before then and in post-war era, only the council was elected, and the Christian Democracy used to be the most successful and popular party locally as well as regionwide and nationwide.
