The trabocco Pesce Palombo at dawn, Fossacesia, Costa dei trabocchi, Abruzzo, Italy.

Trabocchi Coast

A trabocco is an old fishing machine made of a platform with cabin. From the platform two long arms stretch out supporting a huge fishing net. Pulling up the net will catch the fish. This wooden structure is connected to the shore by a narrow bridge. I like to photograph trabocchi. There are many of these to photograph in the Trabocchi Coast in Abruzzo region, Italy.

    Schöne Fotos! Obwohl ich schon ein paar Mal in den Abruzzen war sind mir diese Plattformen noch nie aufgefallen. Werde mich beim nächsten Besuch mal besser achten…

      Danke. Dieser Küstenabschnitt befindet sich 30 bis 40 Km südlich von Pescara.
