Italian Heritage Month is flying by so I wanted to take a moment to share photos (and video) of a few events that have happened.
First up, Taste of Little Italy in Toronto
This is the amazing Claudio Santeluce, musician and singer.
College Street was packed, especially with restaurants selling everything from canoli to burritos!
The folk group Coro Italia sang regional classics.
At Vaughan’s City Hall, Italian Heritage Month exhibits were on display.
“Italy Now, Architecture in Italy 2000-2010” is an exhibit comprised of 104 architectural photographic panels depicting Italy’s architectural developments spanning a decade, presented by Insituto Italiano di Cultura in Canada.
“Legacies,” presented by Gina Valle of Diversity Matters and the AMICI Museum, is a photographic display from her book “Our Grandmother Ourselves: Reflections of Canadian Women,” portraying the lives of Canadian women, their strength and wisdom in overcoming unimaginable odds of war, poverty and immigration to a new country.
“Musica Musica Tanta Music” is a presentation of Italian-Canadian music throughout the ages.
At Inspire 2012, youth had an opportunity to come and listen to, meet and interact with famous Canadians as they share their personal stories on how they achieved success in their respective fields.
Did you catch any Italian Heritage events yet this month? I’m still hoping to get to a Books and Biscotti event!
