Craftsmanship has always been one of Italy’s strong points and a source of livelihood for many generations, both in Italy and abroad. Trades like that of the cobbler, the ice cream maker or the miller, are still practiced in the
countryside and villages throughout the Lazio region. In the aftermath of the Second World War, they were considered good working opportunities for Italian immigrants in Latin America. The stories of those who practiced their craftsmanship in Italy and those of who put their trade in their suitcases
and left, tell of a precious heritage that has been remained in the shadows for too long and now deserves to be rediscovered.
