Following last year’s success, CO.AS.IT. is excited to again be able to offer free guided tours of the Museo Italiano exhibition by Elizabeth Triarico, manager of the CO.AS.IT.

The tours provide a special behind the scenes experience and many opportunities to enjoy and share a wide range of fascinating Italian immigration stories.
Established in 2010 and located in the heart of Carlton, the Museo Italiano is the only permanent exhibition of its kind in Australia. This popular exhibition features rare objects, images, and stories from CO.AS.IT.’s Italian Historical Society, and engaging multimedia presentations which celebrate Italian immigration and its invaluable contribution to the development of Melbourne, Victoria, and Australia. Through its themes of Departure, Settlement, Interaction and Identity, the exhibition explores all aspects of the Italian immigration story from the early 1700s onwards.
Join a free guided tour of the CO.AS.IT. Museo Italiano exhibition led by Elizabeth Triarico, manager at the CO.AS.IT. Italian Historical Society + Museo Italiano. Gain a special insight into the Italian Australian immigration experience, with unique stories and objects including the rare Australian-designed Sputnik Coffee machine.
