All Things Capranica

I am often asked, what nationality is that name: Capranica? It is indeed Italian. By means of the modern miracle of Google, I have learned just how Italian it actually is.

Capranica is the name of two different cities in Italy.

One is located north of Rome in the province of Viterbo. While it has a modern side to it, a more historic section can be found also.

A second city of Capranica is found east of Rome in the province of Prenestina (here’s a quick video) on top of a hill. It boasts a medieval origin and maintains a small population.

Capranica is also the name of a residence (college) for Vatican students, located in Rome.

I’ve found a restaurant as well as a theatre (check┬áthe video), both in Rome, bearing the Capranica name.
