Hello & welcome to our newly refurbished site that gives a brief history of an Italian Community that became known as Sheffields Little Italy. It still holds all the previous information, we're just modernising to give the site a cleaner feel. if you have any questions or comments please add below.


  1. Hi - I'm just dropping in to say I am the grandson of Doris (Saccomando) & James Daws. I have also seen my great Uncle's Tony, Andrew and Teddy on here. I've also seen my grandmothers Uncle Ernest Pellegrino (my great, great Uncle). I remember him visiting my Gran's and us going to his house - I was only a young lad back then. I've also seen my Great GrandMother & Great GrandFather - Rosa & Antonio Saccomando. I never met Antonio, but again can remember Great Gran visiting my Gran's (Doris) and us going to GreatGran Rosa's house. It seems a world away now. Where have all the years gone?

  2. I have often wondered how Rita and Emelia were and not know either of their married names thought I might never find out . We have been living in Spain for the last 11 years and I would just like to send my love and wish them well Alma

  4. Hi Julie,

    Am I being stupid; there doesn't appear to be a way to sign in, as before, to the forum.
