My annual pilgrimage takes me to my ancestral island of Procida,
an island in the
Gulf of Naples in the Region of Campania, Italy. Here I can visit with family
members and enjoy studying the illuminated manuscripts of the Church of
St. Michael the Archangel as well as savoring the wonderful traditional cuisine
of the island.
