The Wall of Migrants

Franšais Italiano
 

Discover our initiative to create a monument in memory of our migrant ancestors who had the strength to leave the islands of Procida and Ischia to other countries to build a new life, open a new way through work, will and hope.

The Wall of Migrants is located overhanging the small fishing port of Corricella in Procida. It will be inaugurated on May 3, 2022 on the occasion of the General Meeting of the Association "La Grande Famille de Procida & Ischia", in presence of Mr Raimondo AMBROSINO, Mayor of Procida, and Mr Laurent BURIN DE ROZIERS, French Consul in Naples.

 The Wall of Migrants, symbol of the migrations of past centuries, is a bridge between generations. It also today connects the inhabitants of the islands with the descendants of these migrants. It pays tribute to our ancestors through their inscription engraved on this wall by perpetuating their memory. In addition, the digital Wall of Migrants, accessible to all online, shares their story.

Origins

The Wall of Migrants was built on a former property of a procidan migrant, whose descendants today actively contribute in Procida and from France in the safeguarding of the historical and cultural heritage of the islands of Procida and Ischia. The history of Michele SCOTTO DI VETTIMO (1845-1938) and the realization of the monument are closely linked...

Achievement

This initiative, presented in August 2013 to Vincenzo CAPEZZUTO, Mayor of Procida, then received the unanimous support of the Procida City Council on October 16, 2013. It was voted in the General Meeting on October 10, 2015 by the members of the Association. Since then, all the necessary administrative formalities have followed step by step to achieve the concrete realization of the monument during the pandemic years in 2020 and 2021, thanks to the work of our architect, the engineer Maurizio DI LIELLO.
