palazzo dell'annunziata: free concerts
In summer, in the courtyard of the Palazzo dell'annunziata, there are often free events - concerts in particular - but occasionallt plays, too. They are free and often top class.
When i was in Sulmona one night there was a really good jazz concert - by a band called the Boston jazz quartet (or something similar). Excellent music and excellent games of light as well. All together it was very suggestive.
Dress Code: As you wish - generally informal
corso ovidio: lo struscio - nightlife the italian way
Lo struscio is the name italians give it to walking up and down the main avenue - not only in Sulmona, but everywhere... it means, literally, the rustle... but practically it means watching people and being watched.
In Sulmona it's particularly pleasant to "rustle" at night, because all the wondrful buildings and monuments are lit up and look straight out of a fairytale book.
Dress Code: Italians would wear some nice clothes... but you can wear whatever you want.
