The Black Hand: July 4
In Calabria, Anthony’ LaPaglia's discovery that Vincenzo D’Agostino was born only an hour away from his father’s birthplace causes him to consider his own fate.
This week on of The Black Hand Anthony LaPaglia explores crue crimes as Vincenzo D’Agostino and the gang he leads assert dominance over the Italians of North Queensland.
Global events also conspire to make life even more difficult for the migrant population.
The kidnap and sexual assault of 13-year-old Elizabeth Rosati by The Black Hand appals North Queensland. Though the guilty face deportation, it’s another crime that further stigmatizes the Italian community.
As tensions rise in Europe, conflict breaks out between fascist and anti-fascist elements in the Queensland Italian community. Anglo-Australia hardens its attitude to all Italians and steps up its efforts to stop the leader of The Black Hand, Vincenzo D’Agostino, as well as the criminal gang, with the Italian community itself increasingly resisting their threats.
In Calabria, Anthony’s discovery that D’Agostino was born only an hour away from his father’s birthplace causes him to consider his own fate had his father never migrated from Italy.
