Event description

Description

Explore the colourful story of the Italian community in Clerkenwell and the area around Hatton Garden.
Discover organ grinders and fortune tellers, the exploits of gangster Darby Sabini and Carlo Gatti, the man who introduced ice cream to the masses. The story of Italian migration starts just over the border in Camden and the walk ends outside the famous Terroni Italian Deli in Clerkenwell Road, where gelato and other Italian delicacies can be enjoyed.

Garibaldi biscuits will be served en route!

This walk is presented as part of The Italians in Islington festival. The opportunity to enjoy this popular walk free of charge has been made possible due to generous funding by the Islington Libraries and Heritage Service.
