From Paesani to Global Italians is a study of the migration history and experiences of migrants from the Veneto region in the northeast of Italy. Veneto, which includes the province of Venice, is today one of the most affluent regions in Italy. Migration from the Veneto to Australia began in the late 1800s, although the bulk of the migrants arrived immediately after the Second World War. Most northern Italian migrants to Australia come from this region. The authors explore the contribution made by this group of migrants to their new homeland, their settlement experiences, and their continuing connections with their ancestral homes. The authors also touch on the future of ethnic groups and the crisis in aged care for people of non-English speaking backgrounds. The text is enlivened by life histories, character portraits, and quotations. Weight exceeds 750g - Overseas postage extra on this item
