About Collections

The Italian Historical Society holds an extensive collection of photographs, ephemera, letters, documents, official records and newspaper cuttings which relate to Italian migration and settlement in Australia.

Much of this material has been donated by Italian migrants and their descendents. While reflective of the experience of Italians across the country, the focus of this collection is Victoria.

The Italian Historical Society welcomes donations of family archives, documents, artefacts and other historic records for its collections.  Contact us if you think you have something to contribute. 

Collections are available for research, and are open to the public by appointment.
