The cities with the greatest numbers of abruzzesi are not in Abruzzi - in the course of the 20th century 1.2 million Abruzzese left their land and now there are 250,000 in New York, 80,000 in Toronto, 1,500 from Rosciano in Australia, 5000 from Pettorano sulGizio in Hamilton, Canada. Next saturday 19 March the third edition of the "Abruzzesi in the world" festival will be celebrated in Silviand broadcast on Rai Uno Sat live via satellite.
