© Julie Goucher, August 2022

This post is part of a series about European Migration. You can read the complete series HERE.

The linking of occupations to new settlements is quite interesting. Here are some examples which are quite general:

  1. Those that left Palma in Italy were often travelling street musicians such as organ grinders often accompanied by a monkey,
  2. Others from Lucca made plaster of Paris statues
  3. Those from the south of Italy were often unskilled labourers
  4. Italians in South Wales typically came from the mountainous region of Genoa and Parma.
