  • Toronto Public Library 40 Orchard View Boulevard Toronto, ON, M4R 1B9 Canada (map)

The Toronto area is home to one of the largest Italian communities in the world. In this illustrated lecture, Vincenzo Pietropaolo will focus on the role of photography in recording the city's Italian immigrant history with archival photographs from the 1900s through post-World War II. He will also include images from own extensive documentation of the Italian immigrant experience with works from two of his books Not Paved With Gold (2006), and Ritual (2016).

This program is cosponsored by Northern District Library and the North Toronto Historical Society. All are welcome.

Meetings are held in Room 224 and begin at 7:30 p.m [refreshments from 7:10 p.m].
