- Gaetano was born in Magre', Vicenza on 16 July 1893. At age 14 he went to work for the Lanerossi cotton mills in Vicenza. He was a well known anti-Fascist and anarchist in Italy and it is believed he migrated to Australia in February 1922 for political reasons. He worked for a few years in the canefields in North Queensland and in 1926 returned to Italy for a brief period. His wife Margherita Di Bartolomei and two children Erina and Maria Luigia migrated to Australia in 1928. They were not able to endure the dire living conditions in Northern Queensland and in circa 1929 the family moved to 25 Edol Street North Geelong, Victoria.
