An Expat Talks about Living in Procida, Italy

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Procida

How long have you lived there?

One year

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

The predominate religion is Catholicism. This area is very poor and a lot of people do not even have a bank account. The cultural diversity is enormous. They are not accepting of differences. In my opinion the people can't even comprehend other cultures. A lot of people cannot read or write. Some people don't know or are not willing to accept that there are other religions besides Catholisim

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

There are no industries in Procida. Career opportunities do not exist. Usually people work in othere areas within or outside of the country.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

In Procida the residents have a very old mentality and have a general prejudice towards non-resents, especially non-Italians. The opinions are that women do not need to work. The top priorities are taking care of there spouses, cleaning house, and having children. Procida is a very small island that is considered part of Naples. Most of the men work away from home and usually see their husbands 4 months out of the year.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

I would strongly recommend against living in Procida.

Procida is a little island with its tiny satellite island of Vivara, in the Neapolitan bay, It is less than 4.1 square kilometres, fortunately without a city. They have the resource of tourism, and if you are acquainted with Literature you should have read about, not only once. Procida has been chosen as a film set for numerous films, maybe one can imagine why!!! The male population works in great part tied to the marine industry. In 1957, the first underwater aqueduct in Europe was built in Procida
