Melbourne: 5-7 April 2018

Living Transcultural Spaces, the inaugural chapter of the international conference Diaspore Italiane – Italy in Movement, will be held in Melbourne, nominated the most liveable city in the world for six consecutive years, and arguably Australia’s cultural capital. The unique multicultural society of Australia, with a significant Italian community now entering the third generation, is the backdrop of this discussion, which explores the notion of transcultural living as both a consolidated practice (in specific contexts) and a qualified ideal.
