A Celebration of Aeolian Italians in Australia
This Exhibition at our museum was extremely successful and we decided to keep it for a further few weeks. If you haven’t visited yet, you have until the 2nd November (every Wednesday and Saturday) to come and see it.
Nestled in the cradle of the Tyrrhenian Sea between Naples and Sicily, the Aeolian islands of Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Stromboli, Panarea, Filicudi and Alicudi were forged by the clashing of tectonic plates. Ongoing seismic activity and the decimation of Malvasia vineyards lead to a mass migration in the early 20 century to countries like Australia, where today some of these families span four generations.
This exhibition is their story.
