Introduction

Il Regno is not a formal membership organization. We are a circle of like-minded individuals based in Brooklyn, New York, who volunteer our time and efforts to preserve and promote our Duosiciliano (southern Italian) heritage, culture and faith.

The title of our journal is an allusion to the former Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, which was often simply referred to as il Regno, or the Kingdom. Just in case the title is not obvious enough, the use of the coat of arms of the Royal House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies on our masthead should make it clear that we are Catholic, Monarchist and sympathetic to the neo-Bourbon cause. Viva 'o Rre!
