Australia – The stories of 31 Italo-Australian artists collected in one volume entitled ‘Ritratti’ (Portraits)

The book, published by the Italian Consulate in Melbourne, narrates the creative career  of 31 Italo-Australian artists. The group of creative artists of Italian origin, based in Melbourne, was selected according to their brilliant profiles which, all together, offer an extremely varied picture. Some worked on storytelling, others focused on the visual impact, some used traditional oil painting as a form of expression while others used engraving techniques, and still others make video. But all share a strong Italian spirit, which often can be a precious source of inspiration. The opening ceremony was attended by Consul General, Marco Maria Cerbo, who addressed the extensive audience by highlighting that Italy is home to the world’s most important cultural heritage and underlined that the lessons learned by the great masters may be appreciated in the works selected and included in the book.
