From Niki, Italy

Niki, Brescia, Italy

I'm Niki and I moved to Brescia 27 years ago as an au-pair. I wanted to go back to my Italian roots (my great grandparents emigrated from Italy to the UK around 1900). I am originally from Ferndown in Dorsett. I love the sense of family here in Italy.


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
