At the time of Massimo's arrest in June 1940, the Magis had three adult children living at home; daughters Rina and Iole were 19 and 24 years of age and their son Philip was 22 years of age.

Massimo Iacopo Magi was born in 1884 in Limano, Bagni di Lucca, Italy. He immigrated to Canada and settled in Toronto where he was the co-owner of the Florentine Lighting Company. On June 10, 1940, Magi was arrested while at work. According to the RCMP, his arrest was due to his affiliation with the Fascio Principe Umberto, where he was the Secretary, and for overseeing the Toronto dopolavoro (after work) group. A number of his employees, including Ruggero Bacci were arrested along with him. Magi was released from Camp Petawawa on June 5, 1941. Upon his return home he started another business, Tuscan Manufacturing Company, which imported artifacts from Italy.
