Vite Italiane documents the migration flow of Italian immigrants from the late 1800s to the present day. This work integrates the history of the largest non-English-speaking migrant group in Western Australia into the mainstream historical record and in so doing shows how the Italian-speaking community has become an integral part of Western Australia’s, and indeed the nation’s, social, economic and cultural fabric.
