    Thanks, Gnomie, for posting the link to the Little Italy.

    I teach Italian at Wirral Metropolitan College and have mentioned (to my students) the fact that an area known as Little Italy existed in Liverpool. The link to the Scottie Press site makes fascinating reading. Thanks again!

    One of my mates is Dominic Volante, named after his Uncle Dom who was a cracking boxer according to my Dad.

    A couple of pics of the unveiling of the Little Italy plaque on the old Pontack pub. It's now a detective agency. The last plaque was nicked a couple of years back.

    Hello Dave, Tony and the rest.

    The detective agency has gone now as well - not enough business for them obviously in that nice little Catholic area

    Ron organised a Scouse Italian reunion night at the Via Veneto as you can see and he could have sold the 70 tickets three times over. Some of the Italian named families that lived in the area when I did were: Muscatelli, Ventre, Baccino, Miello and Tremarco.

    My Grandad was born and raised in the area, he attended St Josephs church, I know a lot of the Italians attended also and they and the English/Irish would have great street parades.

    Ironic really that my grandad was killed and buried in Italy during ww2.

    I dont know if you would be interested or if you might know of somone who might be,but I am putting on a big football festival in Liverpool in July/June next year ,it is based on the World Cup and we have been putting it on in London for the past 12 years in Regents Park,I have already posted this on the Polish thread and have come across some interested parties there for the Polish Team,so I thought i would see if you or any of your friends would be interested in entering a team to represent Italy.
    It has been hugely succesfull in London ,even to the extent of having TV and Radio coverage.We are already a fair way down the road of organising it except for the doting the I's and crossing the T's with the council,but the TV and radio are already onboard.
    There is alot more information I could give you so if you send me a PM I will get it over to you if you think you could come up with a team or know someone who could,it is 11 a side by the way.

    Pmac, probably best if you centre your attention on Bedford rather than Liverpool. Almost every other person is bluddy Italian!

    I think you might have not understood that the event is taking place in Liverpool so the idea is to get representation of the cultures from within the city so as to bring the different cultures together in a festival of football.

    I was well aware that that the event was taking place in Liverpool, but you failed to mention that it was for inhabitants solely from Liverpool. I think you need to address this.

    Sebo, now a Downtown liverpool guy of course, try their website also.

    Pmac. Try posting your request to ronformby@scottiepress.org who is the man behind the www.scottiepress.org and he may include it in his local newspaper too. Over 1000 copies going out this month.

    Thanks for your comments, this was just the introduction to the Scouse Italian reunion night. The main feature 'Gardens of Stone' lasts for 1hr 18 mins and features extensive archive footage, along with new interviews with past residents of the tenement blocks.
    I will post details of any new screenings as soon as they are confirmed.

    Great to see, Ged. I don't see any mention of the Bioletti family of Liverpool which surprises me. Maybe you could give me the contact info for Ron Formby? PM me if you would.

    MERSEYSIDE’S 3,000-strong Italian community will be turning out in force for next week’s Champions League match – but most of them will be rooting for Liverpool.

    While the city’s bars will be heaving with Reds, Italian restaurants are also preparing themselves for the big night.

    One of the main sites will be Bar Italia in Castle Street, where proprietor Franco Colangeli is bracing himself for a repeat of the dramatic scenes that accompanied Liverpool’s last clash with AC Milan in 2005.

    Around 50 specially-invited Italian guests are expected to descend on the restaurant, where Mr Colangeli has a reserved room which will show the match as it is broadcast on Italian TV. continues...

    Mr Colangeli has lived in the city for 44 years and, although he is a Lazio fan, will be cheering on Liverpool.

    Default little italy book help needed 2008

    I am about to embark upon a project for a book dedicated to the families who lived in and around the little Italy area of Liverpool, mainly Gerard St, Christian St, Lionel St and Circus St. This also includes St Joseph and Holy cross parishes. Along with Terry Cooke author of 'Little Italy' and Ron Formby of the 'Scottie Press' families we are interested in contacting are...
    Albertini, Baccino, Biolettis, Bordessa, Capaldi, Cappella, Chiappe, Colletto, Frediani, Fusco, Gianelli, Imundi, Innelli, Mancini, Marengo, Miello's, Minchelli, Minghella, Muscatelli's, Podesta, Riozzi, Sabatini, Santangelli, Silvano, Tambourini, Tremarco, Valerio, Varcelli, Vernti, Ventro, Vermiglio and Volante. Also anyone else with stories of the area are welcome too.
    All information and photographs of the area which later became Gerard Gardens would be greatly appreciated either e-mail me here at the forum or e-mail to dmdanunz@hotmail.co.uk

    Thanks Debz D'Annunzio
