The Home Front - An Italian Experience

On Tuesday 29th February we had a visit from Mr Ruoppolo. We learnt all about the second world war through the eyes of his parents, Anna and Gennaro. The information was amazing! We learnt about the day Italy declared war in 1940, school life for Italian children, about the ‘big’ families that Mussolini liked and about how after the war, lots of new foods were introduced by the allied troops. We even listened to an air raid siren. It was great. Thank you so much Mr Ruoppolo!
