Within the two decades 1950's and 60's, a mass Italian migration occurred to the point of 10 times the previous total of Italian-born immigrants!
Melbourne being their major target, within Melbourne, they mainly settled in Brunswick and Carlton - moving over to Heidelberg, and basically spreading through northern, north-western and north-eastern Metropolitan Melbourne.
So great is the Italian influence in Australia, in fact, that today, Italian is the second most-spoken language within Australian homes!
