Il Cammino: From Italy to Sarnia-Lambton

On display at the Lambton Heritage Museum from May 15 – June 30, 2024, will be a new exhibit titled “Il Cammino: From Italy to Sarnia-Lambton”.

The exhibit will explore the stories of Italian families that immigrated to Sarnia-Lambton in the last century. Many of their experiences are universal for emigrants from countries around the world. The Italians of Sarnia-Lambton came from almost every region of Italy, but the majority came from Ciociaria. Other regions of origin are Abruzzo, Campania, Calabria, Sicilia, Sardegna, Veneto, and Friuli.

This exhibition is based on a travelling exhibit prepared by Sarnia’s Italo-Canadian Cultural Club in 1990. Key organizers of that exhibition were Caroline Di Cocco, Antonia Ambrose, Fr. Claudio Holzer, and Nella D’Agostini, with the support of the Italian-Canadian Community of Sarnia-Lambton and the Italian Consulate of Toronto.
