New Zealand Strombolani

In 2000, the Wellington descendants of the immigrants from Stromboli, one of the Aeolian Islands, held a festival to celebrate their heritage. This led to the creation of a book chronicling their stories, which was published the same year. Its title is Famiglie Strombolani – Strombolian Families.
