Dear Readers,
, Once again we arrive at. the
December/January edition of
our magazine. So many events
have taken place in our
"quartiere italiano" that there
hasn't been room enough to
· relate them all.
· However, at present there are
two television productions in
which I am involved.
,
· In "The Queen of Hearts" I
have at the moment 25 of
the "paesani" who, through
family connections, go' back
to the 1900 era. More of this
· will be written in a future
edition of BACK HILL.
I would like to take this
opportunity oC wishing you
all a "Buon Natale" for 1988,
and a "Felice Buon Anno" for
1989.

Dear Sir or Madam,
,We are an independent production cei'IiWaJiy' which 'makes
programmes for Channel Four
and are seeking your co-operation ,in the making of a
programme about those Italians
who, for personal reasons,
escaped internment
in Britain during the Second World
War by "disappearing" from
official view and leading a
secret life.
There have been a couple of
programmes
on
television
which have followed British
soldiers who have gone back
to villages in Italy where
they lived secretly amongst
Italian partisans win the war.
These have been human stories
fascinating accounts of what.
it's like to live with the
.threat of discovery and how
one survives in that situation.
What we would like to do is
a similar killd of programme
about Italians who lived secretly in Britain during the
war. Ours will be a sympathetic look at people who've
gone . through an. interesting
"
experience.
The programme
will not be concerned with
politics or controversies, but
in looking at the way ordinary
Although we feel that the
overwhelming
response
of
viewers to our programme will
be sympathy,
and
indeed
some admiration for those
who refused to be imprisoned
through no fault of their own.
We realise that some people
who were involved will be unwilling to tell their stories to
camera.
There are, however, many
ways of participating in this
project while still remaining
anonymous.
We can guarantee
you absolute confidentiality if
you require. We can interview
you on camera in a darkened
room, so that your face cannot be identified, or we can
get an ,actor to read out
lines onscreen that you have
spoken in an interview' offscreen.
We can change
people's names and place
names too if that is your
wish, if you want to avoid
any chance of identification.
We are interested in interviewing
anyone
who
was
involved, whether in helping
or sheltering someone, or in
living "underground!'
themselves. In the first case we
would like to
have discussions
,
.
with anyone who is prepared
•
to participate.
This involves
.
no commitment at all, on
your part, and you can obviously withdraw at any stage. ,
'
As further reassurance of the
positive and sympathetic approach ,we intend to take, I
can show you the chapter I
wrote about the history of
Italians in Britain in a book
published in 1987 titled "Guide
to Ethnic
London".
,
We hope you will be willing
,to meet us ,to 'play some
part in the telling of this as
yet untold stoiy. We believe
that this is a chapter of the
story of the Italians in Britain
which des~rves to be told.

"
Michael Cavalli, one of our
very own boys, has literally
exploded on the classical
music: scene with a work 'of
such outstanding quality that
it was as unbelievable as it
was overwhelming, what a revelation! It left me complete, 'Iy stunned. For 'once in my,

incredibly
moving that it hurt - a heart-,
rending cry from the head
and heart, indeed from the
very soul of Michael Cavalli.
The complete work is positively saturated with distorted
pai!l,
anger,
bitterness,
utter
despair,
frustration,
incredible anguish, agony, sadness, rebellion, resentment, ""
every negative feeling was
there yet, with occasional
glimpses of hope, even joy
and .yes FAITH. All this interspersed with the magical
sounds of Victorian London.
However" unlike
much
of
modern music', the composer
never lost the melodic: touch"
"" thank God." I cannot, repeat
often enough how every carefully composed note, perfectly
rendered, struck home, so
that by the time the last
heart rending chord had died
away, my companion and I
both found we had unashamed tears rolling down
our cheeks.
I still cannot fully grasp

TEMPTATION OF CHRlSf"
It was with some degree of
dismay that I read your 'Cinema' column in the October
. issue of BackhiII, on the film
"The last
temptation
of
Christ".
.
.
This is 'an extremely dubious
film to say the least, and to
have the trivial comments by
the columnist Agrifoglio ~osco
appearing in a publication
which is so closely associated
with the Italian Church and
its community I .find offensive and of highly questionable taste.
In respect of the film itself"
one of the main reli.sons that
many Christians find' it unacceptable is because it is based
on a series of inter-related
untruths which directly di. stort certain aspects of their
faith in God and in Jesus
,
Christ. This incidentally also
indirectly affects other religious groups who honour Jesus
as a great teacher and prophet.
It is no. real argument to say
on one hand that the film is
based on a work of fiction,
and then say it is designed
to give us an insight into the
mind of Christ. In writing a
work of fiction,it is unacceptable to use the character of
a real and identifiable person
and then weave .tales· about

We con,tinue our tour around,
Saint Peter's Italian Church.
,
Let us move to the other nave
and stop fora .moment and
wonder at the beauty of the
statue of Our Lady of Carmel
on her altar.
This is the
main centre of devotion for
the Italians in' London.
Her
feast day ,is the, 16th July
and on the first Sunday following this is the date of the
huge Italian religious procession.
.
,
tw'o ·hours and all that could
be heard' from the spectators
was admiration for the clear,
melodic singing, the lovely
groups of children and veiled
teenagers, the majestic orations and the .rich habits
worn by the Clergy. In the
evening, after the church
doors were closed, the streets
of "Little Italy" took on a
party atmosphere - the best
Italian wine
flowed
and
everyone, rich \lnd poor alike,
abandoned themselves. in a
feast of song and dance
accompanied by the accordian
and barrel organ. This street
party usually lasted til the
early hours of the morning
and the new day marked the
new year of
beginning of
hardships.

CAT 'ON "A HOT"TINROOF'
,
by Tennessee Williams
at- the National Theatre
-(Lyttelton)
Thirty years ago, because of
its homosexual allusions, this
play was forced by the Lord
Chamberlain to be performed
in it club theatre (parallels ,
today??). Now, there is little "
shocking in -the play from this
aspect -, the emphasis is towards the social attitudes, of
the characters and their problEims in facing up to reality
and hiding behind illusions one, of the great debates of
modern drama.
The scene (another beautifully
detailed and atmospheric design by WiIliam D'udley) is a
cotton
plantation
Missouri
, 'where Big Daddy's family is
gathered ,to celebrate his
birthday. Brick, ,his son, has
become 'a drunk and morally
empty, crippled 'by guilt at
refusing help to his friend
who then committed suicide.
, He is also ,refusing to face up
to 'fears about, his sexual identity. Big Daddy realises the
problem as does Brick's wife
Maggie (the Cat) who tears,
• him to pieces when alone with
,him, yet defends him like a
tiger against the rest of' the
family. Brick's brother, Gooper, his wife imdbrood of
, precious no-neck children are
also present, waiting liKe vultures to grab the plant?tion
as soon as Big Paddy expires.
• Big Daddy fears he has cancer, but a hospital clearance
eases his mind - until the
third act when Tennessee
, WiIliams provides a vivid picture of the cruelty of the
family as they move in for the
kill, after revealing that ,the
report was yet another illusion.
The end of the play has Brick
being lured back into Maggie's
bed with a hint that they will
be ~ble to ,p,rocreate (Maggie 's

EASY VIRTUE
;by Noel Coward,
at the -Garrick 'Theatre
.
,
'
Written in 1924 this is one of
Coward's least known plays.
Writing, usually, for specific
'players, Coward here gives us
a drawing-room drama dealing
with social and psychological
problems of the upper middleclass confronted by a 'woman
,with a past '. Coward based
the construction, ',of,the "play
on the accepted modes of the
day and yet mocked the co~­
vent ions of those same days.
The whole cast is well-chosen.

my order in with Santa very
early this year (and yes I have
been a good boy for, as we

For those who are giving or
receiving CD players this year
there is now a wide choice of
recordings of operas at mid
price (and I've heard through
the grapevine 'that the major
record companies are wining
down releasing' the black 12
inch disc altogether. This is
reflected in that most of the
CDs recommended this month
have no disc equivalent).

Once in a while there must
be a good excuse for Sunday
lunch out. It hasn't -really
caught on amongst the 'Inglese' section' of -the community, still generally shackled
to roast and two veg at home.
Amongst Italians it appears
much more de rigeur, at least
as a community event - the
lively throng assembled in the
Cafe' Royal or other locations
on the circuit, after .the duties of Mass, ready to tuck in
and catch up on the gossip. -

At £83.00 for three, including,
a hefty twelve and a half per

not a cheap experience, but
the price includes also wine,

professional service. There is
maybe a •fractional unease
that your waiter might succumb to stereotype and 'tell

they held their poise. All definitely worth. a try, and evenings (with liye pianist) have
a good reputation also.
