1927 Pioneer families

 

Romolo

A group of young Italian men and one woman arrived in Adelaide in 1926/27. They came from the Veneto region in the north-east of Italy. Within a few years they established commercial market gardens in the western suburbs about eight kilometres from Adelaide. They farmed on Frogmore, Grange, Findon and Valetta Roads and formed a close community of families up to the 1970s.
