Procida, an island off the coast of Naples, has earned the distinction of being chosen as Italy’s Capital of Culture for 2022. It’s the first island to win this title since the award began in 2014. Procida was picked among a selection of 10 finalist cities.
The announcement was made by Italian Minister of Cultural Heritage Dario Franceschini. Porcida will take over the title from Parma, which held the title in 2020 and 2021.
