- How the Italian-Australian left and its press viewed Il Globo
- Battiston, Simone
- In response to the establishment of Ii Globo in 1959 the Italian-Australia left launched its own monthly journal in 1963 II Nuovo Paese, under the auspices of the Italian-Australian League (LIA). The II Nuovo Paese was unable to hold it momentum and was forced to fold in 1966. In 1974 the task of producing a new leftist Italian newspaper fell to the Italian Federation of the Migrant Workers and their Families (FILEF) with an identical sounding periodical name Nuovo Paese (without the Il). This new journal would become the ‘workerist’ biweekly of the FILEF, and was to offer a leftwing source of information to the local Italian-language readers. How II Globo was viewed by the Italian-Australian left and its press in the 1960s and 1970s is recalled in this chapter. Although different, the history of II Globo and that of the Italian-Australian left newspapers did share some common features, including not only the aspiration to shape public opinion within the ethnic community but also help sustain the political ambitions of their editors.
