Luigi Morato

With the EPT conversation occurring across several social media platforms, including the facebook group, the sharing of stories is also more networked. Today, via facebook, I heard from Ginetta Morato, daughter of Luigi Morato. She writes:

My father, Luigi Morato also worked for SAE Bologna before being sent to Australia in 1956. He was employed by EPT for all of his working years in this land, and held the role of Testing Station Manager, Marayong until the company’s closure. Sadly, he passed away just on 2 years ago. Please know that he would have taken great pride and delight in viewing your posts. My mother on the other hand was instrumental, together with Padre Silvio, in commencing the Saturday Italian language courses for children of EPT workers, in which she taught from 1968 until the 1980’s. These programs played an important part in bringing together a community and providing an opportunity for the preservation and maintenance of Italian language and culture in second and subsequent generations.
