Pineto: the Torre Cerrano

A shady pinewood stretches behind the beach of Pineto, a popular Abruzzo resort. Amongst the maritime pines stands the imposing Torre Cerrano, a sixteenth century construction that now houses a laboratory of the Marine and Fluvial Biology Department of the Experimental Animal Husbandry Institute of Abruzzo and Molise, where there is an experimental plant for high-tech aquaculture. The tower has given its name to the Marine Reserve of Torre Cerrano, which protects the seabed in the area between Pineto and Silvi Marina.
