Italian Heritage Month

Italian Heritage Month

June is Italian Heritage month.

This year is the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy.

Today is the 65th anniversary of the day Italy became a republic.

And this afternoon I was joined by the Italian Vice Consul Gabrielle Niccoli, MPP Liz Sandals and members of the Italian community to raise the Italian flag at City Hall in recognition of this auspicous day, month and year!  Coro Cantitalia sang the national anthems of Canada and Italy and several traditional Italian songs.
