Quite surprised at that! Any ‘second generation’ Italians? A Cardosi ever play in the reserves, for example?

Or a Parducci or a Jaconelli?

 

Anyone mind Jaconelli's café in Johnstone?  Now they served good ice cream, now they served good ice cream indeed

Santino Marini in the early 2000s.
Related to the Marinis who own the Viking chippy in Largs.

Tom...

Or a Trentos or Izzis from Renfrew... ??

Trento was his first name, Girasoli was the surname, good Cafe on the main drag just past Porterfield Road.

 Izzis was owned/run by Silvio Izzi, big garage down at the Ferry.

Both had great Ice Cream and I worked for them both in my early Teens.

Al Pacini's.

Think that was his brother Aldo.

I know two of his children Giulio and Genni well, as they a lived a few houses up from my parents.

Giulio was running the shop when it changed hands a few years ago.

It was a  Giulio I worked with in Glenburn around 1971. Also worked with Dominic Girasoli on the Gallowhill run just before that. 

Used to be a Trento Van outside my school, St. Mirins,  at lunchtime and I would jump in and give a hand.

Ah....memories.

I remember the name Dom. That was a blast from the past.

The Giulio I'm referring to wasn't born in 1971.😄

I mind their dug better, a fecking wolf

It was a gentle giant.

They used to walk it round the golf course and everybody gave it a wide berth.

She was called Bianca, because of its coat colour.
