A Wonderful location

 

Procida was appointed as the Capital of Italian Culture 2022 by the Minister of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism Dario Franceschini and chosen by a commission of experts.

Procida, is a tiny spot (under two square miles in total) of land in the Bay of Naples in Italy, might be best known as the island between Ischia and Capri. Procida was the set of several films such as The Talent of Mr. Ripley and Il Postino thanks to its dream scenarios. The pastel-colored houses, marinas lined with cafes and narrow streets of its larger counterparts, but also historic sites, wilderness and nearby empty beaches.
