    1 hour 22 minutes Marina Elizabeth Anne Berton was born at Mildura, South Australia in 1948 to Italian-born parents who had emigrated in 1937. Marina describes the strong cultural traditions upheld by her close-knit family and her ‘deprived’ education at a local Catholic school. Marina moved to Adelaide to attend Wattle Park Teachers College in 1965. Early in her teaching career she became involved in English language adult education for migrants, and more recently in developing Italian language education for second generation Italo-Australians. Throughout, Marina has been much involved with the Italian Federation of Emigrant Workers and their Families (FILEF), including six years as its President.
