Roccaraso is an Italian town of 1,672 inhabitants in the province of L'Aquila in Abruzzo. It belongs to the Community Montana High Sangro and Altopiano of the Five Miles. Famous for its ski resorts, which make it one of the major tourist resorts in the Apennines mountains. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, the opening of the rail link with Naples began to bring the first tourists, attracted by the beauty of the natural environment, and welcomed the various hotels that at that time were beginning to rise. However, an abrupt setback came with the Second World War. Roccaraso was located right on the head of the Gustav Line, the system of fortifications with which the Germans tried to stop the advance of the Allies after the landing at Salerno. The town was completely destroyed by the bombing, which caused by the way the loss of the theater built in 1698, one of the oldest in Italy. Nonetheless, the roccolani did not lose heart; at the end of the war the country slowly began to live, to go back to being one of the most popular tourist centers.
This ski resort is the heart of the largest ski area in south-central Italy, the area Alto Sangro, including 160 km of slopes and 36 lifts. The first ski race was held in 1910 and the first ski lift was the sledge of Mount Zurrone built in 1936. Many races are held in the resort annually even internationally. In March 2005 Roccaraso successfully hosted the finals of the European Cup male and female. In 2012 he hosted the Junior World Championships.
