It brings together the descendants of migrants from this region of southern Italy. Indeed, from the 19th century onwards, a large proportion of Italian migrants came from the islands of the Naples area [map]. Fishermen, traders or farmers, they leave for North Africa, France or the United States of America, others as far as Argentina and Australia. Today, their heirs can be found all over the world!

By joining the association, you will be able to easily search and find your roots, understand your family history, reconstruct your family tree or simply discover the cultural and natural richness of the islands. In this way, you will participate in the preservation of the heritage and origins of our Grande Famille de Procida & Ischia.

Delegated by the Procida City Council for the promotion of tourism in the territory of Procida in France, and with its involvement since 2003 in local projects, the association voted at the General Assembly of May 5, 2013 a new cultural dimension, based on the principles of enhancement and preservation of historical, cultural and natural heritage. Here are some of our most notable initiatives:
