A couple of testimonials and photos from the participants.
"On Sunday 27th October, six members of my family, together with fellow students, members of the Italian community and other interested people, attended a wonderful powerpoint presentation to launch ‘From Taranto to Trieste – Following the 2nd Division’s Italian Campaign, 1943-45’- written and presented by Jennifer Mallinson. For everyone, especially those of us who had family members in this Division, it was very enlightening, filling many gaps in our knowledge and expanding our understanding of this arduous campaign, great book!"
"Grazie Enrica e Roberta, both workshops were so so interesting, amazing Maori-Italian cultural connections and Dante, what a gem he was and still is!"
"Cannot wait to taste Sergio's pizza on the 17th... after seeing the Italian passion put in making the precious dough".
