Mazzini-Garibaldi Club Limited
After WWII, La Società recovered its premises, changed its name to Mazzini-Garibaldi Club Limited, and enjoyed a wonderful heyday in the 1960s and 1970s. The Club's function as a meeting place declined as City property prices soared and London Italians moved away to the suburbs, The Club sold its premises in 2008. It continues its social functions in keeping with Mazzini's principles, and acts as an historical reservoir of archives of the first Italian community, now housed in the Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre.
The Mazzini-Garibaldi Charitable Foundation
The proceeds of the sale were deposited in a charitable trust, The Mazzini-Garibaldi Charitable Foundation, which makes grants to (primarily) the London Italian community for the purposes of education, medical assistance, art, etc.
Arandora Star Memorial
In 1912, the Mazzini-Garibaldi Club led the appeal to raise funds for a memorial to the 241 London Italians who died in the Arandora Star tragedy. The memorial, in St Peter's Italian Church, Clerkenwell, was dedicated on 2nd July 2012, the 72nd anniversary of the tragedy.

Mazzini-Garibaldi Club member Olive Besagni has written a fascinating book, A Better Life, that sets out the history of the Italian community in London, based on first hand interviews and family memorabilia.
