Alfredo Strano: An Italian Migrant who Made a Difference

Carmelo Genovese


1 in stock

Migrant from Calabria. Strano quickly finds his niche in the new country. Within a few years he buys a house and realising that his fellow Italians, left to their own devices by an uncaring Italian government, are in need of assistance, he sets up a migration and travel agency called significantly “Boomerang Travel Service.” He becomes the factotum of Perth’s Italian community, spends his evenings teaching English to NESB migrants and Italian to Australians, becomes president of ANFE in Western Australia, and works for the welfare of his community.
