A WAVE of emotions filled the city’s Olympic Hall on Sunday, October 11, as Italians, Greeks and history enthusiasts gathered to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the ship Regina d’Italia’s (Queen of Italy) arrival in Adelaide.
As part of the Odyssey Festival, the audience was treated to rare footage of the ship’s 1924 journey from Italy to Australia.
The premier of Dall’Italia All’Australia documented Italian film producer Stefano Pittaluga’s first-person account of rough seas, stunning sunsets, diverse coastlines and loneliness during the three-month voyage.
Odyssey celebrates the ‘journey’ of the Greek and Italian migrants of South Australia with the screening of Dall’ Italia All’ Australia (from Italy to Australia) - the cinematographic record of the voyage of the SS Regina d’Italia (Queen Of Italy), which in September 1924, brought 504 migrants from southern Europe to the South Seas including some 130 Hellenes, mostly from Kythera, Kastellorizo and Cyprus. The experience of viewing this silent piece of heritage is enhanced by music performed live by four piece folkloric band. It was first screened in Milan in 1925, only to disappear into a vault for the next eight decades - A South Australian premiere.
Tickets available from the Greek Orthodox Community of SA, Level 1, 262 Franklin Street, Adelaide 5000, open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm or call 08 8231 4307.
