Pescara is the capital city of the Province of Pescara,
in the Abruzzo region of Italy.
As of January 1, 2007 it had a population of 122,404.
Located on the Adriatic coast at the mouth of the Aterno-Pescara river,
the city was formed in 1926 from Pescara, the part of the city to the south
of the river (then in the province of Chieti), and Castellamare Adriatico,
the part of the city to the north of the river (then in the province of Teramo).
The surrounding area was formed into the province of Pescara.
The poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, a native of Pescara, was a major
sponsor for the creation of the new city.
The main street of the city is Corso Umberto I, which runs from
Renaissance Square, better known as Piazza Salotto, and reaches
the coast at Piazza Primo Maggio. Corso Manthonè, the course of the old
Pescara has, for many years, been the centre of the nightlife of the city.
City hall and the administration of the province are in Piazza Italia, near the river,
and in the area between here and the faculties of Economics, Architecture,
Foreign Languages and Literature of Gabriele d'Annunzio University to the south,
a business district has grown up over the years.
To the immediate south of the mouth of the river is the marina.
