Teramo About this sound listen  (Latin: Interamnia) is a city and comune in the central Italian region of Abruzzo, the capital of the province of Teramo.

The city, 150 kilometres (93 mi) from Rome, is situated between the highest mountain of the Apennines (Gran Sasso d’Italia) and the Adriatic coast. It is indeed one of the few places where it is possible to reach both the sunny beaches of the Adriatic and the 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) snowcapped Gran Sasso peaks within half an hour from the city centre. Nestled at the feet of Gran Sasso National Park, in Abruzzo, the greenest region of Europe,[1] Teramo stands on a characteristic hillside area where the distinctive terrain features along with the typically mediterranean climate make the territory rich in vineyards and olive groves.

It can easily be reached in one and a half hours by car from Rome via the A24 highway and it is also connected to the A14 highway.


The name[edit]

Interamna (Greek: Ἰντέραμνα: Eth. Interamnas, Interamnātis), was the name of several cities in different parts of Italy. Its etymology, already pointed out by Varro and Festus, indicates their position at the confluence of two streams.[2] The form "Interamnium" (Greek: Ἰντεράμνιον), and the ethnic form Interamnis, are also found, but more rarely. The name referred to the two rivers Vezzola and Tordino, between which it lies. The name is already corrupted in extant manuscripts of the Liber Coloniarum into Teramne, whence its modern form of Teramo. But in the Middle Ages it appears to have been known also by the name of Aprutium, supposed to be a corruption of Praetutium, or rather of the name of the people Praetutii, applied (as was so often the case in Gaul) to their chief city. Thus the name Abrutium is present among the cities of Picenum enumerated by the Geographer of Ravenna (iv. 31); and under the Lombards a comes Aprutii is mentioned. The name has been retained in that of Abruzzo, now a region of Italy.

Pre Roman age: From 7th to 5th century BC[edit]

Teramo has very ancient origins. The settlement of the 1st BC millennium along with some buildings of the ancient people of Italy were the object of very recent archaeological excavations. The most ancient historical remains were found in the outskirts of the city, precisely, in the neighborhood Madonna della Cona, where, among many, a burial place with a dagger and a halberd were found. Allegedly, the development of the old settlement was due to the commercial center founded by the Etruscan and Phoenician civilization.

The Praetutii (The ancient people of Teramo)[edit]

According to the Roman author Sextus Julius Frontinus, the ancient Perut or Pretut (hill surrounded by waters) strongly developed in dimensions and importance until it became the capital of Praetutium and Conciliabulum where the Praetutii people lived.

Roman age[edit]

Interamnia became a city of relevance under Hadrian

The city takes its latin name of Interamnia Preatuttorium (City of the Preaetutii between two rivers) allegedly simple translation of the toponym “Petrut”. During the Age of Augustus Intermania is included in the fifth district: The Picenum (the VI district was Umbria and the IV was Samnium). The area of the current province is divided from south to north in Ager Hatrianus, Ager Praetutianus and Ager Palmense. During this period Interamnia is:

  • Conciliabulum: Place of meeting and market
  • Praefectura iure dicundo
  • Municipium, after the 2nd social war
  • Sulla's colony. In this period the city loses the status of Municipium because of the participation of Lucius Cornelius Sulla in the Second Social war (91-88 BC), but the city will subsequently regain it for expressed will of Julius Caesar.
  • During the Roman age, thanks to its nearness to the capital of the empire, the city lives a very prosperous and favorable moment as the numerous mosaics, theater, thermal baths and the amphitheater remains evidence. As historians like Ptolemy, Livy and Pliny remember, the city reached its best period under the emperor Hadrian, with the constructions of the temples dedicated to Mars and Apollo.

The Goths and the Byzantines[edit]

A first destruction of the city in the year 410 by the Visigoths under Alaric I is testified. Even though the information about this age is very uncertain, it is said that the presence of the Goths in Interamnia is active until 552-554 A.d. Right after the Gothic War, the city is a possession of the Byzantine empire. Teramo is then anew included in the Marchia Firmana, under the Greek Exarchate of Ravenna. The city is now governed by a count of the Marchia Firmana.

12th century[edit]

  • 1129, After the Lombards’ invasion in Abruzzo, the city becomes territory of the Normans settled in the duchy of Apulia.
  • 1140, Teramo is possession of Roger II of Sicily, the first king of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.
  • 1153, A not well-identified subject called Teodin, helps build the church and the cloister of Sant’Angelo delle Donne; subsequently it will take the name of Madonna Delle Grazie.
  • Teramo is destroyed by the Norman army of Robert di Loretillo. Only the tower of Piazza Sant’Anna was saved from this sack; from this moment on it will be called Torre Bruciata (burnt tower).
  • 1176, The Romanesque construction of the Duomo of Teramo is completed.

13th century "Age of Freedom"[edit]

14th century[edit]

During the House of Anjou dominion, Teramo is subjected to a new period of majesty and prosperity: the ecclesiastical authority of the Aprutina Diocese, led by the bishops Rainaldo Acquaviva, Niccolò degli Arcioni (1317), Stefano da Teramo (1335) and Pietro di Valle (1366) gives new life to the city. This is witnessed by the construction of beautiful castles, churches, cloisters and palaces along with the great privilege granted by the sovereigns. The city changes its architectural face, both in the old district and the new. It turns into a frontier city and in the very sense of the word, it is named Gate of the Reigns.

15th century[edit]

"A lo parlare agi mesura"
  • Period defined by the struggles between the most important families of the city (De Valle and Melatino). The exemplary hanging of 13 followers of Melatino’s family is still remembered in a stone shield in the very center of the city. The monument represents two heads with their tongues out under the writing “A lo parlare agi mesura” (mind what you say).[3]
  • During the first years of the century, the tyrant Antonello de Valle is assassinated and therefore his beautiful castle, which was located in a square known nowadays as Piazza Garibaldi, is demolished. The legend says that the belligerence between the families ended thanks to the women of the city who proclaimed a strike of affection. Despite the internal struggles, the city lives a very developed cultural period. Artists like Jacobello del Fiore and Nicola da Guardiagrele give pearls of beauty to the city and the commercial relationship with Tuscany and Venice turns Teramo into a cultural shrine.
  • June 1442, The Kingdom of Naples is a property of Alfonso V, King of Aragon.

16th century[edit]

  • 1504, The kingdom of Naples passes to Ferdinand II of Aragon, king of Spain. This begins the Spanish dominion to Abruzzo and all of Southern Italy.

It is indeed said that among the night from the 17th to the 18th of November 1521, the troops of the Duke who were surrounding the city fled scared by the vision of the Virgin Mother with Saint Berardo defending the city. The miracle of Saint Berardo, patron saint of the city was born.[4]

A view of the Roman theater

The Roman theatre was built in the early 2nd century under emperor Hadrian. It is nearby the Duomo of Teramo. The walls are 10 ft (3.05 m) long and the estimated capacity was 3000 spectators. Over the centuries, the structure was mined for building materials. In 1918 its ruins were rediscovered, and in 2007, a project to rebuild the theater was planned, incurring in the demolition of Palazzo Adamoli in 2011. The poet Gabriele D’Annunzio said of this site that “The remains of the theatre of Interamnia proves its ancient Roman majesty”.[8]

Roman Amphitheater[edit]

The 700 ft (213.36 m) wide building was a Roman amphitheater. During Middle Age, the site was used as a fortress to protect the city.

The tower built in 11th and 12th centuries has three bells and it is 165 ft (50.29 m) long. It houses the silver canopy of Nicola da Guardiagrele, built from 1433 to 1448.
