Co.As.It works in partnerships with many individuals and organisations: Federal and State governments in Australia and Italy, the Victorian Multicultural Commission, the Immigration Museum and other cultural institutions.
The Association of Senior Italian Citizens’ Clubs of Victoria is constituted by over 90 senior citizens’ clubs for Italian-Australians operating throughout the Melbourne metropolitan areas and in several regional areas. Groups meet in community venues and generally meet two to three times a week.
CO.AS.IT. has been involved with so many events, projects and activities that our timeline coincides with key moments in the history of the Italian community in Victoria and in Australia. CO.AS.IT. has been and still is a remarkable and vital presence in Australian society.
The IHS has extensive collections of historic materials documenting the Italian presence in Australia. These are made available to scholars, writers and the community to assist them in family and community research.
