Family Business - An Italian-New Zealand Story
Last Thursday Island Bay came to Willis Street as crowds gathered at Unity Books Wellington to celebrate the book launch of Vincent Moleta’s recent creation Family Business.
In the book he traces the life of his grandparents from the childhood in Stromboli to their arrival and life in Wellington. Packed full of illustrations and forgotten tales, Moleta paints a detailed picture of ‘the rich culture the Ӕeolian migrants brought with them’.
