Uncover the remarkable, cultural heritage of a migrant community hailing from the volcanic archipelago of the Mediterranean. Famous in Melbourne for their ‘fruit palaces’, Aeolians established a vast number of independent businesses in their newly adopted home. Beyond business, Aeolians have become leaders in politics and society. Encounter extraordinary families who have shaped Melbourne’s Aeolian community and learn about how Società Isole Eolie continues to nurture and connect Aeolians in Victoria and abroad.


Developed in collaboration with the Società Isole Eolie and the wider Aeolian community. Part of the exhibition From Volcanoes We Sailed open at the Melbourne Immigration Museum April 30th - October 30th 2016.
