Idyllic island life off the coast of Italy

Sea-faring people

It seems as though every resident in Procida has a boat – whether a fishing vessel or a small rowboat – and that love of the sea dates back to the island’s first settlers. It is thought that Procida was inhabited by the seafaring Mycenaeans as early as 1600BC. Today, Procida’s famed Istituto Nautic founded in 1855, still trains officers, engineers and other maritime professionals. (Amanda Ruggeri)
