Due to the COVID-19 emergency, CO.AS.IT. has had to put its cultural program on hold.
In the meantime they are trialling an Italian Australian culture series on line, and inviting experts in the field to contribute a talk of about 20 minutes, to provide an opportunity to reflect together on the Italian Australian cultural sphere we inhabit and collectively construct, on its strength and diversity, on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
To view the talks, go to CO.AS.IT.’s web site (www.coasit.com.au) or alternatively click on: http://coasit.com.au/2020-italian-australian-culture-series/elise-valmorbida-suitcase-stories
In the second talk, Dr Maddalena Tirabassi presents a snapshot of Italian emigration in the first two decades of the new Millennium and sketches the challenges posed by COVID-19 to the new Italian mobility.
