“In 1994, Melbourne journalist Tony De Bolfo began to wonder what had prompted his grandfather and two great-uncles to leave their homeland in northern Italy for a new life in Australia.  He turned to his great-uncle Igino – the only surviving member of the original trio who undertook that arduos forty-six day voyage aboard the steamship Re d’Italia (King of Italy) in 1927.
But what began as simple curiosity became an overwhelming obsession for Tony, which led him on his own voyage of discovery. Working from the original passenger list, he set out to reconstruct the life stories of the 105 men, women and children who accompanied his forebears down the gangway, into the unknown.”
