It was a Venetian, Francesco Vanzetti, who offered the first courses of Italian at the University back in 1929. It should be noted that his was the first appointment of a lecturer in Italian at any university anywhere in Australia. Supported by the Institute of Advanced Studies and by Italian Studies at UWA, the full programme of lectures is available here. Professor Kinder’s lecture is entitled ‘Italians in Nineteenth-Century Western Australia, and how a Venetian Industrial Chemist Came from Kalgoorlie to Teach Italian at the University of Western Australia’.
