Global Perspectives - Italy: Marsia di Tagliacozzo
In 1961 a ski resort with a chair-lift was open on Mount Midia (5708 ft), in the region of Abruzzo, just one hour east of Rome, on the Apennine Mountains. Starting from the 1980s the ski facilities were gradually abandoned due to the lack of snow. Now, nature has taken over and the chairlift is hidden in a beechwood forest, while most of the houses of the nearby village are abandoned, or on sale.
