More About This Title London's Italian Community


Italian migrants have been coming to the UK since the time of the Romans, with many heading towards England’s capital. The centre of London’s Little Italy is the area of Clerkenwell. The Italian population made it their home during the early 1850’s and by 1880 it was a common sight to see ice-cream vendors from Saffron Hill plying their delights. Today, that Italian Community is as strong as ever and in this volume Julie Goucher will explore the delightful area and the people living within it.
