The book launch will be held on June 9, 7:30PM at the Fireplace Lounge, Sweeney Hall in Waterloo, ON. The launch represents the culmination of three years’ work by SJU Italian Professor Emeritus Gabriel Niccoli, Italo-canadese poet Anna Ciardullo Villapiana, and Stella Paolo. 

On behalf of the local Waterloo Region ICAP chapter, as co-chairs, Anna and Stella wanted to celebrate, honour and preserve the contribution of Italians who emigrated to Canada. For this reason, the official presentation has been planned for June, Italian Heritage Month. 

To RSVP email Stella at; please note that RSVPs should be sent by May 25, 2023.
