The first bathing establishment was "Bagni Nettuno" which corresponds to the current "la Lucciola" beach. Built between the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century, it was built on wooden stilts that were dismantled at the end of the summer. It consisted of a platform with eight changing huts on either side of a central body that served as a refreshment point. The second historical lido was "Bagni Sirena" corresponding to the current lido Celommi. The two buildings disappeared to make room in 1933 for the "belvedere sul mare". In the 1960s the first brickwork buildings appeared: la Lucciola and lido Mirella.




Full description

The first bathing establishment we have news of in the Council of Roseto degli Abruzzi is the ''Bagni Nettuno''. It was built between the end of the 19thcentury and the beginning of the 20thcentury. This establishment corresponds to the current ''La Lucciola'' beach. It was built on wooden stilts on the beach and was dismantled at the end of the summer. On the platform there were eight changing rooms on the sides of a central body, which served as a refreshment point.

Next to Neptune, the bathing establishment ''Bagni Sirena'' was built (even if it was small in size), corresponding to the current Lido Celommi.

These contemporary constructions disappeared with the construction of the ''Belvedere sul mare'' in 1933, which occupied a stretch of beach, facing the current ''Raffaello Celommi'' pine woods, bordered to the north by via Thaulero and to the south by via Frascati. The viewpoint was 200 meters long and 24 meters wide beyond the belvedere, towards the sea, there was a row of cabins and umbrellas were placed further ahead.

The beaches, as seen today, began to develop after World Was II.  ''La Lucciola'' and ''Lido Mirella'', became famous in the 1960’s for musical entertainment, with the participation of famous artists.
