Thespina's father, who was born in Cephallonia, made the journey. Like many other Greeks, who boarded the boat at Port Said, Egypt. He then established a large and successful farm at Uralla, in North Western New South Wales, were a descendant still owns the farm.
This was the first screening specifically for a Greek audience.
More than 350 Hellenes and Philhellenes attended the screening.
‘Dall’Italia All’Australia’, literally meaning ‘From Italy to Australia’ is a silent film shot by Italian Film Director Angelo Drovetti in 1924, that chronicles the voyage of the Regina d’Italia (Queen of Italy) - one of three passenger ships first built for the Lloyd Sabaudo Line at the turn of last century.
See previous MESSAGE for additional information.
The film was discovered by Melbourne journalist and writer, Tony De Bolfo, during research for his book ‘In Search of Kings’ that chronicles another passenger ship from the same line called ‘Il Re d’Italia’, (The King of Italy) - 1927.
Tony was determined to deliver ‘Dall’Italia All’Australia’ to an Australian audience based on the belief that the film not only commanded enormous Australian historical value, but that it would resonate with the many Australians who have empathy for the courage of migrants and who share the excitement in being part of a most unique event.
