Our September 2001 visit to Lu Lette got a bad start when our rental car broke down the first day...we pulled in in front of the Lu Grezz restaurant, where the proprietor, Davide Toppi, called a mechanic who pronounced the car dead.  A tow truck carted it away, and took us to Pescara for another.  Davide was a big help - grazie, Davide!
Davide Toppi, proprietor of Lu Grezz' restaurant, in the lower part of Lettomanoppello.  'Lu Grezz' is dialect and means a person who is boisterous, loud.
View of Lu Grezz; it is located in the lower part of the town.  While the building appears large, some of it is the residence of the family.
Clothing boutique next to The Bomboniere.
The Bomboniere sells gifts and flowers in the lower part of town, near the 'bivio' or junction of the road to Lu Lette with the road to Manoppello.
Above:  The Region has been installing signs as part of its campaign to increase tourism in Abruzzo.  This signpost is on the mountainside in Lu Lette, above the town, marking Sentiero 5 (footpath 5), which leads through an area known as Costa dell'Avignone to the Fosso S. Michele Arcangelo, the ravine where an ancient hermitage was located.

Right:  The original 12th - 13th century statue of San Michele. Originally located in the cave in Fosso S. Michele Arcangelo where the hermitage once stood, it is now at the Museum of the Abruzzese People in Pescara.  A copy of the statue is in the cave now.
Otello Di Mastrantonio, barber and proprietor of the barbershop 'Otello Acconciatore' on via Silvo Pellico near the municipio.  His 'victim' posing for this picture is Antonio Di Lisio, who very helpfully introduced us to his Cardinale in-laws  who run shops on via Cairoli.  September 2001
