‘To the other side of the world’, talk by Giuseppe Gallina (Auckland, 28 August 2019)

Giuseppe Gallina presents Dall’altra parte del mondo: To the other side of the world for Family History month at Central City Library, Auckland.

In this illustrated talk, Gallina discusses the evolution of Italian emigration to New Zealand which began in 1769 with the first arrival – a Venetian sailor who came on the Endeavour with James Cook. Giuseppe explains why Italians left their homeland for this country, when they came, where they settled, the work they did, and the challenges they faced as their community grew.
