Museo Italiano

Museo Italiano is a partnership between the Italian Historical Society and CoAsit, an organisation that provides welfare to Italian immigrants. Together they tell stories of the first Italian-Australians when Carlton became fondly known as ‘Little Italy’. Via interactive exhibitions, you can virtually experience the rough journey Italians took to the New World. Again during the gold rush (that really was a thing, wasn’t it?) and migration programs, Italian artists, farmers, craftsmen and people looking for a new life settled here. Wonder why Australia is famous for its kick-arse espresso, despite being at the end of the Earth?
