The Emigrante Statue Unveiled
The "EMIGRANTI" Statue unveiled.
The statue pays homage to the Italian immigrants who left Italy for Sydney, Australia, travelling aboard The Angelina Lauro, 'across the waves' of the Indian Ocean, eventually travelling north from Sydney to Bundaberg for better farming opportunity.
The statue depicts her as pregnant, with he by her side, both awaiting departure from their country carry nothing but a few small bags with which to create an entirely new life in Australia.
This statue is donated by The Waves Sports Club and dedicated to those Italian immigrants whose hard work, dedication, forward thinking and commitment saw the first Across the Waves club opened on October 19, 1968. That small club, predominantly of bocce, soccer and socialising has since been rebuilt, redeveloped many times over, and now stands as a Bundaberg icon, rebranded as The Waves Sports Club, with over 55,000 members, supporting 16 sporting and social clubs, and contributing over $1M in financial donation and support to local individuals, organisations, and businesses each year.
The Emigrante Statue shall remain in place for decades and perhaps longer, and will forever commemorate, honour and thank those founding members of Across the Waves Sports Club, 1968.
