QTR. 2. 1909

Married Ida Celestina Vittoria MARCHESI in Broadstairs, Kent, England.


  • At the time of the 1891 England Census, Emilio was a waiter at the restaurant of his uncle Luigi Longhi (1853-1939) in 12 Harbour Street, Folkestone. He was noted as a Swiss subject from the Grisons and whilst there could have been another with the same names in Poschiavo/San Carlo, we can be almost certain from his age 18, that it is him. In due course, Luigi Longhi moved his business to Margate and we might speculate that this is how Emilio met his future wife in nearby Broadstairs. Emilio established his own Swiss CafeĢ€ at 79 High Street, Gravesend and later, with Giuseppe (Joe) Marchesi  at 5 George Row, Northampton. Luigi Longhi also opened a restaurant in Maidstone, Kent, and we know the original Longhi family house in Privilasco, San Carlo.

    Emilio's family owned the Ragno vineyard in Tirano. Sadly, he died at a young age and is buried in Poschiavo cemetery.
