Ed in effetti di festa si trattava . Era la festa degli Eoliani nel mondo. Raccolti da tutte le isole dell’arcipelago molti eoliani d’America e d’Australia non hanno rinunciato a venire a Salina nonostante il minacciato cattivo tempo e l’assenza della nave di notte per tornare a Lipari.

A taste of the Eolian Islands with Giulia Biviano Italianmedia


Delight your tastebuds at the Eolian Hall in Lygon Street.

During the Società Isole Eolie’s 10th Annual Cultural Cooking Demonstration, Giulia Biviano will launch her latest cook book, Cucina di casa nostra.

In 2007, the idea to present a cooking demonstration for members of the Società Isole Eolie became a reality for Giulia, and the response was so great that it spurred her to write her first cook book, Dolci di casa nostra, published in 2010.

In classe con IL GLOBO Promoting the beauty of the Italian language Italianmedia


Today marks the beginning of what promises to be a longstanding tradition between IL GLOBO and schools which teach Italian in their curriculum.

To celebrate the beginning of the term, today’s edition of IL GLOBO features a double-page spread aimed at primary and secondary school students learning Italian.

The first edition of “In classe con IL GLOBO” focuses on the theme of travel and summer holidays in Italy and features a crossword, word puzzle and an Italian nursery rhyme dedicated to primary schools.

The special feature also explores the summer tradition of Ferragosto in Italy, an article with a glossary to expand secondary students’ vocabularies.

A feature and photos of an Italian day held among Xavier College’s Early Years students is also included in the edition, along with the story on Northcote High School’s week dedicated to foreign languages, including Italian, Greek, French and Chinese.

“In classe con IL GLOBO” will be published at the beginning of every school term, and the next instalment will be published on Thursday, October 12.

In addition, every month there will be a special page devoted to Italian-related school activities, classroom photos and other items of interest submitted by Italian teachers and students.

The next monthly edition will be published in IL GLOBO on Thursday, August 17.

This new initiative aims to offer students an insight into modern-day Italian – the latest linguistic trends, new words, news and current affairs – in this ever-evolving world of language and culture.

It will also be an opportunity to celebrate students’ efforts and successes in learning this wonderful language.

Teachers and students can send articles and photos of classroom activities related to Italian language and culture via email toinclasse@ilglobo.com.au , or mail them to the following address: In classe con IL GLOBO, PO Box 250, Brunswick West, VIC 3055.

E come tanti altri “confratelli eoliani”, si è lamentato che pur essendo nativo di Lipari, con l’aliscafo nel tragitto Milazzo-Lipari, ha dovuto pagare come…turista.

“Ma non è sufficiente che nella carta d’identità risulta che siamo nativi delle Eolie? – ha commentato – tanto piu’ che ormai siamo anche gli ultimi, visto e considerato che a Lipari non si nasce piu’. Che senso ha un “Card” che poi bisogna rinnovare di anno in anno…'”.

Victorias first Italian bilingual school celebrates a milestone Italianmedia

Walking through Brunswick South Primary School, you may feel transported half way across the world.

Children heading to class greet their teachers with a “buongiorno” instead of a “good morning”.

A group of Grade 5 and 6 students begin the day with a geometry lesson, learning their way around a protractor in Italian.

As of 2017, Brunswick South Primary School has become the first Italian bilingual school in Victoria, and the first Victorian school in 20 years to realise a new bilingual program.

The unique learning model adopted by the school provides students with the opportunity to be educated in not one, but two languages, and to be exposed to another culture at a young age.

School principal, Sheryl Hall, pioneered the introduction of the program after discovering the myriad benefits of bilingual learning, from stimulating brain development to enhancing memory and concentration.

Though the bilingual program was officially launched this year, it has been gradually implemented since 2012, and now allows students from Prep to Grade 6 to engage in the Italian language for 50 per cent of their class time.

In December 2015, state funding to sustain the bilingual program was announced, with the government allocating $100,000 towards its development.

Deputy Premier of Victoria and Minister for Education, James Merlino, has been an advocate of the project since its inception.

Mr Merlino, of Aeolian heritage, was today recognised by the Italian Republic, receiving the Order of the Star of Italy, for his collaboration in the project.

“This is a truly humbling experience and it is something that I will treasure forever,” he said.

“I have always had a proud connection to my Italian heritage and it’s wonderful to be engaged with the Italian community.”

Before students and teachers, Mr Merlino was presented with the award by the Italian Consul General for Victoria and Tasmania, Marco Maria Cerbo.

“Mr Merlino has been active in many fields throughout his career, but he has never forgotten his roots,” Mr Cerbo said.

“He truly deserves to become a cavaliere because his results are tangible; we are awarding a prize to a person who delivered a result that we can see.”

The success of the bilingual program was largely due to the tireless work of both Mr Merlino and Mr Cerbo, along with Ms Hall and a group of parents who pushed for the project to come to fruition.

School Council President Gabrielle Marchetti and Donatella De Palma were two of the founding members of a committee which was formed in 2008 to lobby for an Italian bilingual school in Victoria.

“We all spoke Italian to our children at home and we really wanted to send them to a bilingual school so that their Italian would continue to develop,” Ms Marchetti said.

“We were dismayed to find that there were lots of bilingual schools in Victoria but none in Italian, even though it is the second most widely spoken language in Australia.”

Eight years and many meetings later, the team of dedicated parents have witnessed their vision become a reality.

“This was our little dream and I’m so glad that we’ve made it happen,” Ms De Palma said.

Lorenza Bini is relatively new to Australia, having migrated from Italy 10 years ago, and is excited to send her son to a bilingual school so that he can engage with his heritage on a daily basis.

“Language also means culture, and I think it’s important for our children to have an understanding of the culture that they come from,” Ms Bini said.

While Ms Bini’s story is not isolated, the vast majority of students at Brunswick South Primary School do not have Italian heritage, and did not have an established knowledge of the Italian language before attending the school.

Out of the 340 students at the school, around 30 have Italian background, proving that Brunswick South Primary School is an inclusive environment which is just as successful in its unique bilingual program with students already familiar with Italian culture, as it is with those who have been introduced to something worlds apart from what they know.
