Digital Invasion of Little Italy, Manchester

In the last month, me and two friends researched the history of Manchester’s Little Italy, an area of Ancoats which used to be the centre of the Italian community between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. All our work fed into a tour we organised in the context of Invasioni Digitali, an Italian initiative to crowd-source our cultural heritage and share it via social media.

We talked about the history of Italian immigration to Manchester, since the late 18th century until nowadays. Here you can read the Storify of the event:
