Definition of the noun abruzzi

What does abruzzi mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: -

  1. a mountainous region of central Italy on the Adriatic


Abruzzi a.k.a. Abruzzo is a region of Southern Italy, with an area of about 10,763 square kilometres and a population of about 1.3 million inhabitants. Its western border lies less than 50 miles east of Rome. The region, divided into the provinces of L'Aquila, Teramo, Pescara and the Chieti, borders the region of Marche to the north, Lazio to the west and south-west, Molise to the south-east, and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Abruzzo is split into a mountainous area in the west with the Gran Sasso D'italia, and into a coastal area on the eastern side with the beaches of the Adriatic sea. Arguably, its geographical location is more central than southern, although ISTAT considers it to be part of Southern Italy, as a vestige of Abruzzo's historic association with the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.


"Abruzzi" is a composition.


Abruzzi is a restaurant.
