Memories of Italy

Hugh Charles Fairfax-Cholmeley was born in Italy at the home of his mother’s family.  After he had a son of his own, Hugh wrote some memories and history of his first home in Posilipo, Naples, a charming account of life there in the final years of the Kingdom of Naples and Sicily, for an English family which had adopted Italy as its home.
