It was the first time the local branch hosted the event since its creation in 1971, with the society and its 400 branches aiming to promote the Italian language and culture worldwide.

Delegates from the Rome head office travelled to Mildura to promote scholarships to study in Italy with Sunraysia students and teachers, representatives from the Italian embassy and the Melbourne Consul-General also present.
