1: Italy has been an official nation/country since the late 1800's. | The country Italy was named after an ancient King named "Italus."
2: Pizza is Italy's most popular meal to have. It is a delicious food. Pizza got here by Italian's that migrated to Australia and brought the recipies with them.
3: Pasta originally came from Italy and when Italian's migrated to other countries such as Australia they brought their food traditions with them and pasta was one of them.
4: Italian people love music! Music is a big part of their lives. They like listening to music on holidays and special occasions. Opera, is a big Italian style of music. They love Opera! | In Italy, their funerals include candles that stay lit for the whole ceremony whilst people pray at the beginning and then family and friends say their condolences and that is also follwed by the burial of the person who died.
5: Most Italian's are Roman Catholics. When they migrated they brought their religion with them. Italian's set up Roman Catholic Schools for Italian children to learn about ther religion and their culture. | Italian's do good with their Wedding's. They rent halls, have heaps of music, dancing, special food, wine and spirits, all that and a Church ceremony.
6: Most of the summer's in Italy are very, very humid. Sometimes there are even droughts. The avergage summer tempratures are 27 to 29 degrees, whilst the winter is usually 4 to 6 degrees.
7: A usual Italian town would probably include all of the following: la gelateria (ice-cream) I'edicola/il giornalaio (newsagent) la tabaccheria (tabacco) la chiesa (church) alimentrari/la drogheria (grocers) la banca (bank) l'ufficio turistico (tourist office) la libreria (bookshop) il supermercato (supermarket) il negozio di abbigliamento (clothes) il municipio (town hall) la panetteria (bakery) la pasticceria (cake) l'ufficio postale (post office) la farmacia (chemist) i vigili urbani (police) il bar (bar/cafe) i ragazzi (children)
8: What would Australia be like without Italian's? Australia would be so much different! We wouldn't have pizza, pasta, wine or even olive oil! We wouldn't have Italian knowledge, such as: their religion, their language or their sport, ect;
9: When did the first Italian's migrate here, to Australia? The first Italian's migrated here way back to the convit time! A few Italian's were captured by the British and brought over here. They were the first ever Italian's to set foot on Australia way back in the 1800's!
10: How many Italian's are there in Australia? Italian's represent about 5% of Australia's population. The total population of Italian's in Australia is dereasing due to higher Asian immigrants.
11: Are there any really popular sports in Italy that aren't so much popular in Australia? Italian's play Soccer (which is really popular over there) and that is popular in Australia, they also do Cycling, Basketball and Motor Bike Racing. They are all pretty popular in Australia so there aren't really any different sports.
