Paintings of Italy by R W "Bob" Goetting
Procida is a small island in the Bay of Naples in southern Italy, situated between the mainland and the larger island of Ischia. Procida is very heavily populated, with 10,000 residents squeezed into less than two square miles, and it has a more authentic, lived-in feel than touristy Capri and Ischia. Procida can be visited as a day trip, allowing enough time to see the prettiest views and enjoy a fine harbourside meal, or for a longer stay with time to relax on the beach. Like 'Capri,' 'Procida' is pronounced with the stress on the first syllable.
This painting shows the area called Corricella, a beautiful colorful waterfront promenade. Highly textured and covered with lively brushwork.
