This special exhibition was developed as part of History Month 2022 and features a unique selection of images which provide a personal insight into the Italian migration and settlement story from departure, to arriving and finally settling.
4 October 2022 to 4 November 2022
The images have been reproduced in a special large format to enable the viewer to see the many details that are often hidden in the original standard sized photographs, providing many opportunities to discover something new.
CO.AS.IT. would like to take this occasion to thank all the generous donors who have shared their images and migration stories with the Italian Historical Society, helping to ensure that this important part of Australia’s rich multicultural history continues to be treasured and shared as widely as possible.
