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. We are Catholic, Monarchist and support the Neobourbon cause. Viva 'o Rre!
We have no aspirations other than to continue to make those sacrifices, to the day we give our lives, if necessary, to defend the cause of our King. The sword that we brandished in Spain, we shall draw again to fight in favor of legitimacy wherever it becomes necessary: the revolutionaries are the same everywhere, and their plans are always iniquitous. The usurpation that has been committed to the detriment of the King of Naples cries out for deserved vengeance, and we consider it a great honor to lend a hand. ~ Francesc Tristany
A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, “You are mad, you are not like us.” ~ St. Anthony the Great
