In 1924, the Italian film director Angelo Drovetti embarked on an epic 8,000-nautical-mile voyage with his movie camera.

The result, Dall’Italia All’Australia (From Italy to Australia), is regarded by many as the most comprehensive film ever made of a migrant voyage. ‘

Dall’Italia All’Australia’ 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.

The film showcases the panoramic views witnessed by Italian, Yugoslav, Greek, Arabic and Jewish migrants as they stood atop the deck of the old steamer during their seven-week world odyssey from Genoa to Australia, by way of Egypt and Sri Lanka, arriving in Brisbane in September 1924.

Author Anthony De Bolfo, who discovered the film, introduces and commentates on the film, with Italian folk music by acclaimed musicians 'I Viaggiatori' the live music is arranged with traditional and original tunes and songs.
I Viaggiatori (The Voyagers) was formed by Kavisha Mazzella to perform a live Italian folk music score for the silent documentary film ‘Dall’Italia All’Australia’ for the 2006 National Folk Festival in Canberra.
