Like AFSI before it, ACIS offers student scholarships to Italy and also hosts biennial conferences which attract a substantial following among Australian academics. Largely the outcome of the philanthropic vision of its President, Dino De Poli, the Cassamarca Foundation is responsible for one of the most significant contributions to the tertiary sector in the Arts in Australia – the establishment and ongoing funding of 13 lectureships across the country in the disciplines of Italian language, linguistics, literature, history and migration studies.
The lectures inspired a whole generation of students, not least Martin Fredericksen, his best pupil, who went on to work on Campania, and whose early death in 1980 was a great sadness. During these years Trendall also began to inspire other universities to acquire collections of antiquities to assist in teaching. This idea which had, of course, long been accepted in Europe and some parts of North America, was new in the antipodes outside Sydney. In 1954, at the age of 45, he gave up his chair at Sydney to become the first master of University House in Canberra.
It is not just an undergraduate program, as are the great majority of foreign tertiary institutions in Europe; not an exclusive postdoctoral research centre, such as a few of the great North American and European universities maintain in Italy. Every faculty of Monash has made use of the Centre, for undergraduate teaching, conferences or research; thousands of students, staff, conference delegates and visitors from Australia and many other countries have been there. These have included Gough and Margaret Whitlam, whose enduring passion for Italy the Prato Centre now embodies.
