Two Dynamic Paths on a Shared Road: Canadian-Italian Cooperation at 150 and 156

The conference is organized on the occasion of Canada’s sesquicentennial,  with the support of the Consulate General of Italy in Toronto and Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Toronto.

Unlike other RCEA meetings, this is an interdisciplinary conference, which will include participants from social sciences and humanities. It has two goals. The first is to celebrate 150 years of Canada and the contribution of Italian-Canadians to Canada’s economic, political, social and cultural development. The second goal is to bring together academics and policymakers from both countries to spur cooperation between Canada and Italy. Canada’s sesquicentennial year, coming only a few years after Italy’s 150th anniversary as a unified state, provides a timely opportunity to strengthen these historic bonds.
