Two Antifascist Exiles at St Edward's College 

By: Mr Giorgio Peresso      Date:  28 February 2014  


Description: Cottonera is enriched with an array of people who were practically in transit. However, though their contribution to the local record might have been modest (though not insignificant), they are part of an important part of European history. 

This public lecture focused on two persons who were teachers at St Edward's College - Giuseppe Donati and Umberto Calosso in the inter-war. Donati also lived at St Edward's College. He left some impressions about Malta and the College through his correspondence with Don Luigi Sturzo. Calosso lived for some time in Verdala Street Cospicua. He knew the Mifsud Bonnici, Boffa and Mintoff families quite well. He was a journalist, a freedom fighter, educator and parliamentarian. Both were exiles from Italy.
