About San Salvo
San Salvo is a town in the Province of Chieti in the Abruzzo region of Italy. It is divided into two major urban areas - San Salvo city and San Salvo Marina. The seaside is characterized by long sandy beaches and shallow waters.
Every year from April 26-28, San Salvo hosts the San Vitale Festival, a traditional city festival dedicated to the celebration of Saint Vitale. Agricultors bring and donate durum wheat flour to the San Vitale church during a procession of decorated tractors. This flour is then used for the production of traditional "taralli" and "sagne pasta" that is distributed among the festival participants.
