Antonio Giordano's Il Globo press pass, dated 1959.

History

Antonio Giordano's career as a journalist in Australia spanned from the late 1930s to the 1970s. He wrote for a number of Italian-language newspapers including Il Globo, a newspaper that continues to publish to this day. He used this pass to gain access to a variety of events which he then reported on. 

Significance

Following the Second World War, with an increase in the number of Italian migrants coming to Australia, the Italian-language press became an important way for Italian migrants to gain access to news and current affairs, particularly pertaining to the Italian community in Australia and events in Italy. As a journalist, Antonio Giordano was also involved in this process and became an influential voice in the Australian press as well, frequently writing letters for many newspaper editorial pages.
