A dialect phrase that roughly translates as 'away to distant lands'... and the name of what's now an
annual event on the island of Ischia - one that both celebrates and commemorates the many, many
Ischitani who made the long journey abroad - emigrating from Italy to the many countries where
they then settled.
The special theme for 2010 is "Donne in viaggio" - which documents the experience of the many women
who travelled alone or with their men, during the long ocean crossing, and also once they'd arrived
in the lands that were to be their new home.
