Gwybodaeth Bellach:
This first detailed book on the subject follows the fortunes of Italian families such as Rabaiotti, Berni, Bracchi, Conti, Fulgoni, Sidoli and many others, and explores their influence on Welsh society.
In this award-winning study Colin Hughes, himself a south Walian, explains why so many immigrants from Bardi settled in the area. He looks at the success of Italian temperance bars in non-conformist Wales, and at the economic and social factors which lie behind the rise and fall of the Italian café.
His book also includes a revealing chapter on the scandalous treatment of Italian internees, and the Arandora Star tragedy in which so many died when their ship to Canada was torpedoed by a U-boat.
Fully illustrated with contemporary photographs, and with a Foreword by Welsh-Italian actor Victor Spinetti, Lime, Lemon & Sarsaparilla is a fascinating history of our recent past.
