The La Famiglia monument is the result of collaboration between the Basilicata Region, the City of Canada Bay and Associazione Lucania of Sydney. This work symbolises the presence of Italians in Australia and the contribution given by them to the material and moral growth of this Country.
The initiative was taken by the Associazione Lucania of Sydney, in particular by its Federal President, Joe Di Giacomo, who wanted to fulfil the wish of his brother Donato, who passed away.
The monument was unveiled on 15 August 2008 and is positioned at Stevenson's Reserve, Fairlight Street, Five Dock.
The 'La Famiglia' book is available to download.
