Vite Italiane: Italian lives in Western Australia

Author: Susanna Juliano

Language: English

Summary: Winner of the 2010 Western Australian Premier’s Book Award for the State Library of Western Australia’s WA History category

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.
