And, our top selling DVD for 2014 is….

After the disaster of WW2, a wave of Italian immigrants found their way to Melbourne – a strange place, suspicious of outsiders and completely devoid of a good cup of espresso. In Lygon Street - Si Parla Italiano, documentarians Shannon Swan and Angelo Pricolo tell the history of this famous cultural epicentre.

Our managing director Mark Rubbo says, ‘ Lygon Street - Si Parla Italiano is a delightful homage to the Italians who helped to change the way Australians thought about food, and about the way they lived.’
