CO.AS.IT. Free Museo Italiano Guided Tours

Join a Free guided tour led by Elizabeth Triarico, Manager CO.AS.IT. Italian Historical Society & Museo Italiano, in celebration of International Museums Day. Gain a special insight into the Italian Australian immigration experience, with unique stories and objects, like the Sputnik coffee machine.

Established in 2010 and located in the heart of Carlton, 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.

The guided Museo Italiano tours which are being offered on International Museums Day provide a special behind the scenes experience and many opportunities to enjoy and share a wide range of Italian immigration stories.
