I live in South Wales where we have quite a large Italian population, Italian immigration began here in the 1890's and many Italians opened cafes, ice cream parlours and fish and chip shops here. There is an ice cream parlour near me owned by the Ricci brothers who still manufacture their own ice cream. We are fortunate to have many authentic Italian Cafes in this area. There was further immigration after the second world war when many Italians came here to work in the mines as there was no employment for them back home. The national lottery has given a grant of £50,000 for an Italian migrant study focusing on those who came here after the war, the scheme will record the life stories and the memories of the immigrants and there will be a photo exhibition touring the country.
