Gran Sasso d'Italia

(grän säs`sō dētä`lyä), mountain group of the central Apennines, in Abruzzi, central Italy. It rises to c.9,560 ft (2,914 m) in Monte Corno, the highest peak in the Apennines. Campo Imperatore, a mountaineering and skiing resort, may be reached by cable car. Mussolini was confined there after his fall from power but was rescued by German paratroopers.
