The marble monument in the shape of a dining table commemorates the contribution of Italian migrants to the state of Queensland.

Confluenza is constructed from Italian Carrara marble, etched with circular plate motifs.  Each is based on plans of significant and historical Italian buildings, such as the Pantheon.

Much of the language used in the inscriptions are based on food and beverages which supports the overarching theme of breaking bread around the dining table.  All of the inscriptions are in Italian and were painstakingly carved to perfection.
