On my first day in London, Peter Barber, historian and head of the British Library’s maps collection, gave me a brief introduction to the history of Swiss-Italian emigrations to Britain.
He showed me some places where the most famous immigrants, Carlo Gatti and his nephews Agostino and Stefano Gatti, made their fortunes. The Gatti name adorned many a café-restaurant run by Swiss-Italian migrants in London.
Michele Andina is zooming in on the story with his video camera all this week, to try to find out about their legacy.
