A Trabocco is a small pier with a complex architectural fishing hut at its end. These beautiful and unique structures with numerous poles, pulleys, nets and beams are found along the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo. Though no longer used for fishing, the Trabocchi (plural) are an important part of the culture and history of Abruzzo.
“A strange fishing machine all composed of boards and beams, like a giant spider.”
Gabriele D’Annunzio, famous Abruzzese writer and poet
