Procida is one of the Phlegrean islands off the coast of Naples in southern Italy. The island lies between Cape Miseno and the island of Ischia. With its tiny satellite island of Vivara, it is a comune of the province of Naples, in the region of Campania. The population is about ten thousand.
Several writers have set their novels in Procida. One of the most notable is the novel Graziella written by Alphonse de Lamartine, who came to Procida at the beginning of the 19th century while in the French army. Another celebrated novel is L’isola di Arturo (1957), one of the greater works of Elsa Morante.
Geologically, Procida was created by the eruption of four volcanoes, now dormant and submerged.
Procida has been chosen as a film set for numerous films, mainly for its panoramas and its typical Mediterranean architecture. The most famous are Il Postino and The Talented Mr. Ripley.
This is “Marina della Corricella” old and picturesque fishermen’s village.
