Celebrating Italian Australian grandmothers
This exhibition is on loan from CO.AS.IT. Italian Historical Society and Museo Italiano.
This evocative exhibition draws on the remarkable photographic collection of CO.AS.IT's Italian Historical Society, as well as contemporary images and stories specifically collected from members of the Italian community.
Whether it is a long distance or much-loved nonna, a surrogate nonna, masterchef or great story-teller, we all have or have had a nonna. This exhibition reminds us of the role they have played in our lives and in our community. Join us in celebrating their wisdom, strength, perseverance, resilience and their great cooking.
Exploring this topic has revealed the often-overlooked group of women whose lives have been extraordinary in many ways. The nonne of yesteryear, like the nonne of today, face challenges in our society but their dedication and unconditional love for their grandchildren is never questioned.
The exhibition will be on display in the Tudor Hall at Block 19 from Saturday, July 4, 2020 to Monday, February 1, 2021 during our opening hours of Saturday, Sunday and Mondays from 10am to 4pm.
