Young Italians can now count on a new virtual "home" in
The new website can be visited at http://www.italyaustralia.com/ . Its attractive graphics offer the chance to interact with the various participating groups. "The goal - said Consul Cerbo - is to provide a modern tool to aggregate people, in the hope to be the basis for a future structured network among the participating associations. We have been working on this project for over a year. It is a bet on the younger part of the Italian community, supporting its efforts to grow and modernize."
Promoted as a platform created to help Italian-Australians to connect, share and celebrate, ItalyAustralia.com is a free online directory for all Australians with an Italian background as well as for people interested in getting in touch with the local community. Its website, which is managed by several leader of Young Italian associations across Australia, helps finding and discovering Italian-Australian Businesses and Organisations, Regional Italian Clubs and Associations, Youth Networks, Community Leaders, Cultural Festivals and Local Events.
The initiative was promoted by the Consulate General and made possible thanks to the support of the Italian Services Institute, which funded the creation of the web page.
