Group Description

Picture Italy – Photograph Melbourne

‘Rome’ around Melbourne and show us what makes your Melbourne Italian. Is it your favourite Italian restaurant around the corner? The Roman inspired architecture in Melbourne’s CBD? Or the old photos of your family migrating to Melbourne from Italy? It’s totally up to you, so long as you can show us what makes your Melbourne Italian.

By showing us what makes your Melbourne Italian, your photo could be on show at Melbourne Museum as part of the Shutter Up You Face display as well as win you tickets to see A Day in Pompeii or dinner for two at Grossi Florentino Grossi Florentino. Mamma Mia!

Thanks to Joe Dolce and his 1980’s hit song Shuddup You Face for the inspiration behind the name of the competition. To find out more about Joe Dolce, visit his website
