Abruzzi e Molise
Abruzzi e Molise (known as Abruzzi when part of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies) was formerly one of the regions of Italy encompassing a total of 16,600 km2 (6,400 sq mi) and including Abruzzo, Molise and Circondario di Cittaducale (presently a part of Lazio).
From the time of the Kingdom of Naples, this region was considered a single entity with the regional capital at L'Aquila. At this time, the region was further divided into four provinces: Abruzzo Ultra I, Abruzzo Ultra II, Abruzzo Citra, and Molise.
