Presentation by Daniela Rose. Numerically, Italians are the largest group from a non-English speaking background in South Australia. Over 20 000 are first-generation settlers and around 90 000 South Australians are of Italian descent. The Italian language is the most common language spoken at home after English. This presentation will give an overview of the history of Italian settlement in South Australia in the context of Italian migration in the 19th and 20th centuries. It will consider their reasons for migrating to South Australia, their settlement patterns and the influence they had on Australian society.
