Campania

Campania is a region in Southern Italy. Campania was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was part of Magna Græcia. During the Roman era, the area maintained a Greco-Roman culture. The capital city of Campania is Naples. Campania is rich in culture, especially in regard to gastronomy, music, architecture, archeological and ancient sites such as Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum and Velia. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fertile countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri.

@ndaly asks:

Hello all,

I am wondering if anyone can give any guidance on if there are licensed architects or drafts-persons who can work virtually with owners on drawing plans for home renovation in Italy (Naples) 

Any insight to this process would be so helpful.
