From Clarissa, Italy

Clarissa, Conegliano, Italy

I was made redundant in London just after having a baby. We went to the Dolomites in Italy just for a break. Later we moved down the valley to Conegliano, an industrial area but also home of Prosecco. I retrained as an English teacher and 20 years later we're still here and have never looked back!


This postcard is one of several collated as part of collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and the Migration Museum. A selection of these appears in the Postcards from the British in Europe installation in Departures, the museum's current exhibition exploring four centuries of emigration from Britain, bringing Britain’s emigration story and its emigrants into the national conversation about migration
