ABSTRACT
The article explores the experiences of Italians living in British India during the 1940s. Particular focus is given to the Italian artist Nino La Civita and to the Tuscan Capuchin monk Father Luca Vannucci, who were living in India during the mid-20th century. Additional topics discussed include how many Italians were sent to internment camps in India during that time due to Italy's declaration of war against Great Britain and details relating to some of the frescos La Civita painted at the St Francis Church in Dehra Dun, India.
