BRISBANE 4 NOVEMBER. LAUNCH OF AN EXHIBITION ON THE FIRST WORLD WAR IN ITALY

On November 4th, Brisbane City Hall was the venue for the launch the photographic exhibition "Instant and Places of the Italian Front" took place. The exhibition was organized by the Italian Consulate in Brisbane, the Embassy of Italy in Canberra and consists of photos of Luigi Marzocchi from the Museum of the battle of Vittorio Veneto. The launch, which was presented by Consul Salvatore Napolitano and Brisbane City Councillor Vicky Howard, was attended by many descendants of the 600 "Knights of Vittorio Veneto", heroes of the First World War who received a honour by the Italian State and settled in Queensland.

The names of the 600 Knights of Vittorio Veneto of Queensland will be on display at City Hall for the duration of the exhibition, until 15 November, in a special edition of a book edited by historian Franco Gobbato and financed by Italy’s Prosecco DOC Consortium. The book will be then donated to local institutions where it will be publicly accessible.

On November 4th Italy celebrates the Armed Forces and National Unity Day, the anniversary of the end of the First World War, and in this respect a ceremony in commemoration of the fallen was organized by Fogolar Furlan Brisbane, the National Alpine Association of Brisbane with the support of the Consulate and Comites, which was attended by 450 people.

Mrs. Antonietta Uliana from Vittorio Veneto City Council and Mrs. Anna Maria Fioretti, Scientific Attaché at the Embassy of Italy in Australia, are the curators of the exhibition.
