Michele Picciano's visit to Australia
Then he also met the attorney general, John D' Orazio, and the MP of molisan origin John Castrilli, whose family comes from Roccamandolfi (Isernia). With them Picciano discussed the initiatives of the Molise regional council in favor of the Molisani in Australia, while in the evening he met a community of Molisani.
In the course of the evening they spoke about the new law for the molisani in the world and the institution of the emigration museum. The council member moreover spoke on the values, traditions, culture, language and roots that are to be the starting point to strengthen ties to the native land and create a Molise-Australia corridor favoring cultural, social and economic exchange. In the following days Picciano will proceed to Adelaide.
