Objects that tell stories about Italian migration and settlement in Australia

The Italian Historical Society - CoAsIt is happy to announce that a permanent exhibition about Italians in Australia will be opening at the CoAsIt building in Carlton during the second half of next year 2010. Part of the project is to tell stories through the display of three-dimensional objects; the society is requesting assistance from the the community to suggest items that might be of interest in telling the story of Italian culture with a focus on Carlton as Melbourne's traditional Italian quarter. At the moment the society is not collecting objects. For information (English or Italian), call Paolo Baracchi (Italian Historical Society, CoAsIt) on (03) 9349 9021, or email ihs@coasit.com.au
