New Release: Vite Italiane: Italian Lives in Western Australia by Susanna Iuliano
Since the 1880s, Italians have enriched the state with their hard work, traditions and culture. From the farmers of the South-West to the miners of Kalgoorlie and the fishermen of the northern coast, Vite Italiane contains the remarkable stories of hundreds of Italian migrant families and is essential reading for all proud Italian-Australians.
'Vite Italiane' explores the geographic, political, economic, social and cultural lives of Italian migrants in Western Australia from the turn of the century to the present day. The book draws from a vast range of archival material and hundreds of oral histories to reveal a complex and contested history of Italian migration to Western Australia.
