"Mario: Don Pablo, vi devo parlare, è importante... Mi sono innamorato! Pablo Neruda: Ah, meno male! Non è grave, c'è rimedio. Mario: No, no! Che rimedio... Io voglio stare malato." Massimo Troisi - Il Postino

Discover Procida

From Elsa Morante to Massimo Troisi, Procida has inspired a lot of writers and directors and its cultural and natural heritage attracts travelers from all over the world. Here, where time seems to stand still, the culture is the daily business and restores its ancient greatness.

Procida, La cultura non Isola
Procida is part of Campania Archipelago, with Ischia, Capri, Vivara and Nisida. Art, culture and natural reserves are just some qualities of this wonderful and colorful place. Such a little microcosm, where art and nature melt.
From the sea, you can see many colors that resemble paintings where you can live a sensorial experience, with food, aromas and the scent of the sea. Here we are in Marina Corricella, the most famous and peculiar fishing village in Campania.
Vivara is a very small isle linked by a bridge. It’s an important natural reserve, where there are spectacular archeological findings.
“Il Postino” by Massimo Troisi has been set here, among the typical streets of the isle.
And for the literature lovers, la casa di Graziella is the perfect place. Ispired by the omonimous book by Alphonse De Lamartine, it tells the love story between the writer and a young native girl.
Also "L'isola di Arturo" by Elsa Morante is set here. It tells the life of a fragile motherless child.
Art, culture, cinema, literature, love, local food, nature and traditions: this is Procida, a little place with a great soul.
