The Trabocchi coast on the Adriatic Sea

The earliest documented existence of Trabocchi dates back to the 18th century, but it probably goes back to Phoenician times. “What is sure is that they were invented by farmers and not by fishermen”,  “La fame spinge il lupo fuori dalla tana! (hunger pushes a wolf out of his den) so our ancestors understood that when the crop was poor, they could also harvest the ‘fruits of the sea’ and came up with a system that was safe and easy for them.” In Abruzzo, a trabocco, is usually built using beams of oak, spruce and Aleppo pine. It is a platform, connected by a bridge to the coast, with long arms called antenne. These antenne stretch out, suspended some meters above the sea and support a narrow-meshed net called trabocchetto (trap). The fishermen retrieve the fish from the bottom of the net whilst it is still lying in the water using a long sieve like a scoop. The technique also spread to Molise and the Gargano peninsula, in Apulia, ‘but it was first invented in this area!’ . Before World War II, fishing from a trabocco could support up to 4-5 families, but they have since lost their economic function. Lately, they have acquired a cultural role becoming an architectural symbol of the area and a tourist attraction. ‘True, now we take people who come from other parts of Italy and many parts of the world. But we do not see people as tourists, rather as friends who come to share a moment of their life with us. They come to find out about our history and help us to keep some traditions alive’. Today many trabocchi are either used as small restaurants ‘on the sea’ or just as a special place to enjoy with families and friends over the weekend.

Come…. come and join us on a Trabocco and Mangiamo al fresco (dining al fresco). or join one of our excursions .
