The Gabriele D'Annunzio University is a medium size Italian public university, whose faculties are distributed between two province chief towns, Chieti and Pescara, located in centre Italy, about 200 Km eastwards from Rome, in the Regione Abruzzo. The historical town of Chieti, founded around 1000 b.C., is the home of the University campus and eight faculties. The faculty of Economics, along with three other faculties, is located in the more recent and rapidly growing town of Pescara, situated on the Adriatic sea shore, about 15 km from Chieti.
