Synopsis

One migrant's mixed emotions evoke the story of all migrants and refugees throughout history - a story of hope, grief and wilful determination to succeed in a strange new land. For thousands of Italians this new land was Australia. "Per l'Australia" is the story of Italian settlement, from as early as 1788 through to World War II and beyond. It is the story of Italians who fled war, persecution and poverty for a better life in Australia. From struggling to build a new home, to suffering internment and POW camps, to burgeoning employment and thriving prosperity, Italians have fearlessly adapted to their new homeland. The joys and frustrations of their new life are captured here in a rich mix of personal anecdotes and history, private mementos and captivating photographs. Personal stories are deftly woven into the broader background of immigration and Australia's settlement history. Italian culture and its vibrant traditions mingle with Australia's own. In a celebration of this coming together of cultures, "Per l'Australia" is written in both English and Italian.

Drawing on the extensive pictorial and oral history collection of the Italian Historical Society at COASIT, Melbourne, this richly illustrated book is a moving portrait of Italians in Australia.
