Procida is a Flegrean Island off the coast of Naples in Italy. A commune of the Metropolitan City of Naples, Procida is said to have derived its name from the Latin word Prochyta meaning ‘poured out’ in Greek. With Achaean objects dating back to the 15th and 16th century BC, found on the island, Procida has an ancient history and culture. Throughout history, the island was a haven not only for commoners, but also for the patrician class of people. This beautiful island surrounded by blue waters has been a popular destination for writers, artists, poets and those who are a part of the creative arts.
