Settling In – histories of the Italian Community

Your chance to tell your life story in your own words has come…


“Settling In” is a brand new project supported by SCIA which aims to record and preserve the histories of the Italian Community in Worthing and the surrounding areas, not just through documents and photographs, but through the voices of the Community members themselves.

We are currently looking for people who arrived in England between the 1950s and 1960s, who would like to be interviewed (in English) about their lives and experiences, both before and after the move.

We are also looking for any relevant photographs we could copy and use for the project, or any family heirlooms we could take pictures of.
