From Volcanoes We Sailed: Connecting Aeolian Generations

Famous in Melbourne for their ‘fruit palaces’, Aeolians established a vast number of independent businesses in their newly adopted home. Beyond business, Aeolians have become leaders in politics and society.

Uncover the cultural heritage of the Aeolian community who hail from a volcanic archipelago in the Mediterranean, and encounter extraordinary families who have helped shape the culture of modern Melbourne.

Developed in collaboration with the Società Isole Eolie and the wider Aeolian community.
