Early life and background
Emma Alberici was born to Franco (from Boretto near Milan), a cabinetmaker who worked at the Victoria Market, and Anna Alberici (from the island of Ischia, off Naples). Her parents are Italian immigrants who arrived in Australia by boat in 1955. The family settled in Melbourne, where Alberici attended Our Lady of Mercy College in Heidelberg, Victoria. She later studied Journalism and Economics at Deakin University. At Melbourne University, Alberici completed a BA in Italian.
Alberici has twice been a finalist in the Walkley Awards for journalism. Both nominations were for investigative reports, the first being her report on the death of a patron at Star City Casino in 1998. It was Alberici's reports surrounding that event, including exclusive interviews with witnesses, family and friends, that prompted a police integrity commission inquiry.
She authored The Small Business Book which became a high selling volume.
