Port of Corricella (Procida, Italy)

    Marina Corricella is the most ancient fishing village on the island. Arranged as an amphitheatre on the sea and surrounded by the nets lying on the quay, this small fishing village is a quiet and seductive refuge characterised by the smell of the sea, the typical narrow alleys, a unique architecture and the total absence of vehicles . It has been chosen by various directors as a natural setting, among them Michael Radford and Massimo Troisi who filmed IL POSTINO here, with the latter also in the lead.

    Across the world, the village of Marina Corricella represents the visual identity of Procida, known for centuries for its colorful houses, arranged one on top of the other, creating a polychromy that generates unique emotions.
