Due to the efforts of Giacomo Piccoli the spirit of New Italy will live on through the establishment of the “Park of Peace”. Every year on April 7 the members of the pioneering families assembled up until the second world war at Giacomo Piccoli’s home for the special ceremony.

The “Park of Peace” is now an integral part of the New Italy Complex and each year, in April, the ceremony is repeated.

Father Miazzi (a member of the Scalabrinian Order) was a much-loved parish priest in North Lismore and there served many of the descendents of New Italy. He was killed in a plane crash in 1968. A memorial to Father Miazzi was constructed at the Catholic Church, North Lismore but when the parish closed it was decided to move the monument to New Italy. The Monument was reconstructed in the Park of Peace in 1991.
