BellaLuna's Fresco March 2012 at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby
and Vancouver' Historic Cultch Theatre

June 10, 1940: Mussolini joins forces with Germany. Italy becomes the enemy within Canada. 'La Dolce Vita' finds new meaning as Italian Canadian "Enemy Aliens" from Vancouver are rounded up by the authorities and sent to internment camps. The creators of 'Futuristi', and 'The Best Italian Variety Show - Ever!' breathe life into this little known event that helped shape the Italian Canadian landscape in Western Canada.

Fresco is a part of the Project "A Question of Loyalty", funded by the Canadian Government, and in association with the Italian Cultural Centre. If you have stories to share or want to participate in these events, please contact Julia Murray at
