The Project

Australia through the eyes of Italians

“This is one of thousands such amazing stories of resilience, hope, vision and above all strength. Viva l’italiani who made the brave voyage to a distant land far from their loved ones to create a new home.
These stories should not be forgotten, but remembered and respected.”

A journey that begun a long time ago and is still ongoing. Inspired by travel journal La lunga strada di sabbia by Italian author Pier Paolo Pasolini (1959), we set off on a road trip across Australia on a quest for Italian stories. The idea is simple: to explore and recount Italian emigration to Australia through personal stories – in a new, social and engaging way.

Italian Dreamtime. Some numbers.

A 3-month journey in Australia, from left to right, from top to bottom, from the vibrant cities to the vastness of the outback. We’ll fill our hard-drives with photos, footage and notes which we will then use to make this…
