Italian Connections Exhibition

Exhibition Design


Italian Connections is exhibited at the Streetlife Museum in Hull. It looks at the links between the country and Hull from medieval trade, the reformation and subjugation of Catholics, to the First World War as an ally and the Second World War as an enemy, as well as POWs, the tragedy of the Arandora Star and the immigration of Italians to Hull between the 1830s and 1920s.

The exhibition charts the history of the city’s most influential and well-known Italian families and is brought to life with graphics, exhibits and interactive content.
