 A few week ago I have found a picture in Pinterest, the title was: A DESCRIPTION OF APRUTIUM, NOW CALLED ABRUZZO, APPEARING ON THE BACK OF A MAP DATED 1590, from Donald Hall's 1956 book, "Eagle Argent"; I felt immediately very interested. I tried to read it, but it was too small and some of the words were completely unreadable. I printed the document to try to decipher it, but it has been hard because the file was badly scanned and many of the words were missed up and badly spelt. I have done a search to prove all the Latin names, those at least are right. Below the text I have managed to transcribe.

If someone has some suggestion or comment, I would be glad to hear them!

A description of Aprutium, now called Abruzzo, appearing on the back of a map dated 1590.

from Donald Hall's 1956 book, "Eagle Argent".

In the kingdom of Naples there is a province which they call Abruzzo, the Latin’s anciently named it, Aprutium: why it was so called, as it is uncertain, so that it took not his name of the Bruy, as someone have been of opinion. I make no question.

Some there are which think it so named Ab Aprus of Bores, for that country being forestry and full of woods, it swarmed with wild hogged: other name do derive it ab asperitate montis apennini, from the peaks of the mount Apenninus, which here in this tract is very hideous, steep and high. The greater and better sort of writers do believe that in it some part of the ancient name of Praetutium as yet remain.

For Scipione Mazzella, the Samnites, (and amongst them the Praetutium) the Peligni, Marsicans, Forestum, Vestini, Marsi, and Albenses, have formerly inhabited these places.

 You have bought your dream house in Abruzzo region and now you are thinking about a swimming pool... What permits do you need to install a swimming pool in Italy?

If you have bought a house in Abruzzo and you are thinking about installing a swimming pool, it is important that you follow the right procedure to require the necessary permits before starting any work. Every region in Italy and even every municipality have different laws regarding the installation of swimming pools.

First of all, to install a swimming pool you need to require a permit to the municipality where the house is located; It is not possible to install a pool without any permit. The permit can be either a simple S.C.I.A. or a building project. If you have bought a land and you are building your house from scratch or if you are restoring a ruin and you intend to extend it, then you will need a building project. An engineer, an architect or a geometra of your choice will apply for your building project. Besides all the structural works, the building project can also cover the installation of the pool.

On the other hand, if the house is already built and you just need to install the pool, you have to ask a geometra to apply for a S.C.I.A.

S.C.I.A. means 'Segnalazione Certificata Inizio Attivita’, this document is necessary when you intend to renovate the house without changing its structure: renovate a bathroom, knock down a partition wall, change the layout of the rooms, etc…The S.C.I.A. is also required if you intend to install a swimming pool. Normally a geometra charges 500,00 / 600,00 euro to submit a S.C.I.A.
