The July Revolution of 1830 in Paris set in motion conspiratorial movements in a number of northern Italian cities and their brutal repression. One of the victims was Tuscan-born Luigi Bucalossi who was forced into London exile in 1831 having taken part in an uprising in Rimini. When Mazzini set up his school in Little Italy, he invited Bucallossi to act as its administrator. Education and communication being considered of crucial importance, he was put in charge of editing and publishing Il Pellegrino, a weekly journal distributed free of charge to pupils attending the school. Produced at no. 5 Greville Street, Hatton Garden, each issue consisted of four pages and was printed in double columns. Between June 1842 and June 1843, the run consisted of fifty copies. Bucalossi continued his educational effort with the publication of L’Educatore which ran from August 1843 to June 1844.
