Italians in Australia: History, Memory and Identity by Francesco Ricatti

Organised by the Department of Italian Studies and Co.As.It

 

 

This book provides a concise and innovative history of Italian migration to Australia over the past 150 years. It focuses on crucial aspects of the migratory experience, including work and socio-economic mobility, disorientation and reorientation. Published by Palgrave MacMillan, this book challenges common assumptions about the Italian-Australian community.
