Ten Top Wogs of the 20th Century

Rino & Bruno Grollo - brothers, partners, builders. Italians. "They came, they saw, they concreted." Their family continues the tradition. Building Oz' second city and a lot of it's other cities too.
Franco Belgiorno-Nettis - magnificent Italian gentleman. Great patron of Australia's arts, and construction and engineering giant, responsible for dirty big tunnels.
Leo Massoni - proprietor of Florentino restaurant in Melbourne, a great quality foodie pioneer for Oz. And Beppi Polese of "Beppi's" in Sydney.
Alex Jesaulenko - Carlton player, son of Ukranians, took the greatest mark in AFL history, "Jesaulennnnnkkoooo, you beeauuty".
Sir James Gobbo – son of Italian migrants, Supreme Court judge and Governor of Victoria. A first for Italians in Melbourne. Nothing we can't do or achieve.
Carlo Colaiacomo - from Rome, now operating in Sydney with his family. Best butcher in all of Oz. And that is really saying something. Possibly the fattest too.
Victor Smorgon - Ukranian, migrant, another great patron of the arts and the fellow who took on BHP in steel production. "What's the big deal with steel? It's just like making sausages."
Michael Diamond - Olympic gold medallist in shooting, son of Greeks. Modern. Gifted.
Theodore Paspalis - head of the Paspaley family of Western Australia - harvesting Oz's exquisite pearls, and doing a great job of publicising it around the world.
Len Pascoe nee Durtanovich - firey Slav cricketing hero. Cricket. Slav. Fast bowler.

Of course there are plenty of others. I would even pop Ma and Pa into the list, sincerely, for their efforts at foodie and opera stuff. But we'll make do with the above.
