Procida (Campania)

Procida is one of the Flegrean Islands off the coast of Naples in southern Italy. The island is between Cape Miseno and the island of Ischia. With its tiny satellite island of Vivara, it is a comune of the Metropolitan City of Naples, in the region of Campania. There are many religious traditions on the island tied to the period of Holy Week before Good Friday. The most evocative of these are the Procession of the Apostles of Holy Thursday and the Procession of the Mysteries of Good Friday. Every summer, there is an election of the Graziella ("Little Graceful"), a young woman that wears the customary clothes of the island, referring to the history told in Alphonse de Lamartine's novel, Graziella. Also during the summer, a literary award dedicated to Elsa Morante and her novel, Arthur's Island, is presented.

Recipes From Campania

The best known version of this iconic dessert, Neapolitan pastiera, is made with whole wheat berries. But there’s a much less labor-intensive twist that uses pasta instead.

Recipes

Filled with the flavors of the area — anchovies from Cetara, black olives of Gaeta, raisins, pine nuts and tender escarole — this first course is a classic favorite in Naples.   

Recipes

A specialty of Campania, this flavor-infused meat sauce is traditionally served with cavatelli, a pasta with a name deriving from “cavato” (carved out).

Recipes

Moist brioche cake soaked in sweet rum syrup, rum babá is a favorite Neapolitan dessert. It’s so beloved that there’s even a Neapolitan expression: Sì nu babbà.

I am attempting to translate my greatgrandfather's 1873 Birth Certificate. The two highlighted words in the image below are confusing me. My translation is:

@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.

What is the fax machine number for torre del Greco commune?

 

I want to get a birth certificate for dual citizenship by blood. 

 

I keep faxing to this number but it fails.
