This chapter recapitulates the book’s findings about the Italian anarchist diaspora that formed in London between the second half of the nineteenth century and the outbreak of World War I. It looks at the role of the British policy of free asylum in allowing anarchists from all over Europe to settle in Britain, as well as the concerns of foreign governments about the threat posed by the anarchists in London. It also considers the Scotland Yard’s surveillance of foreign anarchists, the anarchists’ capability to recruit new militants among the Italian community, and place occupied by the newspapers published by the Italian anarchists in London in the history of the anarchist diaspora. In addition, the chapter reflects on the personal friendships forged by anarchists and political refugees in the many London clubs and concludes by assessing the impact of the two world wars on the anarchist movement in London.
