The Calabrese is a geographically and culturally distinct population from southern Italy’s traditional latifundia region.

Calabrese of Australia

The yearly backyard practice of creating “Conserva” (pasta sauce) each summer is a testament to the various cultural traditions and rituals that Calabrian families have preserved since migrating to Australia. Scratch the surface of this crucial yearly occasion. You’ll discover a variety of cultural, social, and linguistic traditions that have not only survived but have strengthened in many cases in recent years. The local dialect is proudly still in use in most Calabrese houses in Australia but is tainted by numerous English terms.

Culinary traditions have been passed down through the generations. The Calabrese family still values food preparation and preservation. Calabrian culture is regularly exposed for all to enjoy via Italian radio stations presented by their very own local paesani. Many religious festivals are held in Calabrese localities in honor of their regional patron saints. Mass is celebrated in Italian in many parishes, and the church serves as a critical social gathering place and a place of worship. Weddings and funerals serve as social bridges between groups that are geographically apart.

Thankfully, many of the customs that Calabrian migrants brought with them have been preserved. As a result, they have unknowingly contributed to Australia’s changing multicultural culture. Despite the difficulties faced by our forebears, who left their homes and families only to be met with prejudice, apathy, and misunderstanding, Calabrians brought to Australia inherent survival skills and attitudes that aided in their successful integration in a strange nation. Many of those abilities and attitudes are still useful today.
