Baron Leonida Nikolai Giovannelli was an Italian-born Manx writer and cultural activist, publishing actively between the 1950s and 1980s. He married an English woman but upon the beginning of World War II, he was interned as an enemy alien in Palace Camp and then Metropole Camp in Douglas on the Isle of Man. Despite a daring escape to visit his wife in her hotel room when she visited the island, he was captured and returned to the camp, only to have his wife divorce him not long after. Whilst in internment, he joined a work party that was employed at Ballaragh, near Laxey. It was here that he met the Manx folklorist, musicologist, poet and author, Mona Douglas, with whom he would form a close lifelong relationship. In great part due to the influence of Mona Douglas, Giovannelli developed a keen interest in Manx folklore and history which continued after the war when he returned to live on the island & resulted in magazine articles & radio broadcasts some of which are included in this booklet.
