Jack Perkins' interview for Radio New Zealand (RNZ) of some of the descendants of the Strombolani about their childhood home of Island Bay and about the group 'Strombolani Connection' which was born as a reunion (with 450 participants from throughout New Zealand), then recorded in the book Famiglie Strombolani. Wellington has had its own community of Strombolani (from the small island of Stromboli, off the north coast of Sicily) for over 100 years now.
