AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This work is a 'ficto-critical look at an unusual example of diaspora where over a period of more than 100 years a small but continuous stream of Valtellinesi working men (from Lombardy valley in north Italy) and their wives and families - the latter following the breadwinner years later in most cases - migrated from what was in those days one of the poorest areas in the Italian Alps to find a new life. They began working at first in the gold-mining industry in Western Australia.' (Source: Author's introduction, Southerly, 2011)
