Roccamorice is a town and comune in the province of Pescara, Abruzzo, central Italy.

It’s distinctive shape is created by the imprint of the Lavino and Lanello rivers, both of which have dried up.

Many of it's inhabitants emigrated to Canada and the USA in the early 20th century until the 1960s.

Some establishments are so old, the buildings do not have addresses.
