Additional resources

The Aboriginal Archives in Italy – A Space for Reciprocal Collaboration is a digital archive and participatory platform created to find out information, curate and respond to archival records about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples held in Italy. 

Information on this site has different rights, uses, and permissions associated with it and will change according to the consultation of the peoples and communities who are connected to those stories. 

This project has been developed by Monica Galassi at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), in partnership with the Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research and with partners both in Italy and Australia.
