Costa dei Trabocchi

A Trabocco is an old fishing-machine made of a wooden platform with cabin connected to the shore by a small bridge.  From the platform two long arms stretch out supporting a huge fishing net. It is one of my favorite photographic subjects and nowhere so many to photograph  as in the Costa dei Trabocchi along the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo, 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.

    Gorgeous set. I am planning a trip to photograph similar structures in Bordeaux next year.

      Thanks Stevie. Sure, most of the Trabocchi are safe and some have been turned into small seafood restaurants.
