Runtime: 350 mins
Genre: Documentary

After the disaster of WW2, a wave of Italian immigrants found their way to Melbourne - a strange place, suspicious of outsiders and completely devoid of a good cup of espresso. Congregating in a then run-down stretch of Carlton known as Lygon St, these irrepressible restaurateurs, enterpeneurs and sometimes mafiosi would come to define not only a street, but an entire city. Now in Lygon St, documentarians Shannon Swan and Angelo Pricolo tell the history of this famous cultural epicentre. Combining archival footage, one-on-one interviews and a roundtable of Lygon Street's most prominent figures, Swan and Pricolo bring to life the people, places, and of course, pastas that have made up one of Melbourne's most remarkable communities.
