In celebration of our Italian community the McMichael brings you a full day of arts and culture, Italian-style!

Food  |  Art  |  Culture  |  Community 

The McMichael’s first annual Italian Day will be hosted by award-winning radio and TV personality, Elvira Caria. Guests will indulge in a sampling of delicious Italian-inspired food, view spectacular works by Italian-Canadian contemporary photographer Louie Palu, participate in family-friendly art activities and enjoy live entertainment.

Italian Day marks the culmination of Italian Heritage Month and the McMichael is honoured to host the Official Closing Ceremony with Honorary Chair Michael Tibollo, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport.

Your support of Italian Day is vital to the future development of Canadian art and the important exhibitions mounted in the gallery. We invite you to join us as a guardian of our ever-evolving and uniquely Canadian collection of art.
