Lygon Street Si parla Italiano

Summary: After the disaster of World War II, a wave of Italian immigrants found their way to Melbourne – a strange place, suspicious of outsiders and completely devoid of a good cup of espresso. Congregating in a then run-down stretch of Carlton known as Lygon Street, these irrepressible restaurateurs, entrepreneurs and sometime mafiosi would come to define not only a street, but an entire city.

Documentarians Shannon Swan and Angelo Pricolo tell the history of this famous cultural epicentre, combining archival footage, one-on-one interviews and a roundtable of Lygon Street’s most prominent figures,  bringing to life the people, places and, of course, pastas that have made up one of Melbourne’s most remarkable communities.
