The true story of an iconic street, as told by the men and women who made it. Narrated by Anthony LaPaglia. After the disaster of World War II, a wave of Italian immigrants found their way to Melbourne - a strange place, suspicious of outsiders and completely devoid of a good cup of espresso. Congregating in a then run-down stretch of Carlton known as Lygon Street, these irrepressible restaurateurs, entrepreneurs and sometime mafiosi would come to define not only a street, but an entire country.
'Lygon Street - Si parla Italiano' brings to life the people, places and, of course, pastas that have made up one of Australia's most remarkable communities.
