Associazione Legami Lontani

The Associazione Legami Lontani, based in Fontechiari (FR) Italy, is a non-profit association that studies local emigration, in particular the flows that have affected the territory of Fontechiari. Over the last ten years the association has collected stories, photos and documents on the phenomenon of local emigration in the 20th century. In the full spirit of the association the research work is carried out in synergy between researchers and members of local communities, Italian and Canadian, supporting those distant links between communities and migrants, from which the name of the association (Legami Lontani) is inspired. Over the years, the association has recounted emigration through various photographic exhibitions and a website. Currently the association is working on the digitization of the archive as well as a paper publication.

Sarnia-Lambton's Italian-Canadian Community Narratives Project: Phase One
Thanks to a generous grant from the Documentary Heritage Communities Program (DHCP), the digitization and preservation of Sarnia-Lambton’s Italian heritage is underway. Thousands of photographs, documents, and other materials have been digitized for long-term preservation online. Thirty Italian Canadians in Sarnia have shared their personal histories of life in Sarnia, and their experiences in Italy and of immigration to Canada. A further twenty interviews conducted on cassettes in the late 1980s and early 1990s have also been digitized. These materials will be available shortly on ICAP's sister site, the Italian-Canadian Narratives Showcase (ICNS). Michael Iannozzi, (4th-year PhD candidate, Western U.) has led the digitization effort in Sarnia-Lambton, with the incredible support of community leader, Caroline Di Cocco. He has also written documents on best practices, instructions on how to conduct oral histories, and published about the importance of preserving the Italian-Canadian Heritage, and any immigrant community’s heritage.
