The Emigration Museum of Malfa
The 19th century is an important historical period for more points of view, and particularly for the migration waves. They used to emigrate for various motivations, and the destination chosen by the emigrants mostly were overseas; just think about millions of emigrants in Australia and in America. The Emigration Museum of Malfa has a collection of documents, photos, and films, showing the causes of the migration phenomenon of the Aeolians’ inhabits at the end of the 19th century. Yellowed cloths, yellowed registers’ pages, where you can still read the names of the emigrants, and the photos of massive departures, tell us a sad page of the story, which unfortunately, is still today repeated: to leave your motherhood for searching luck in another place, which sometimes is only imaginary.
