This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).
From Italy to America, an exhibition at the Greenwich Historical Society through June 30, combines an installation celebrating the rich cultural heritage of the Italian American community in Greenwich, Connecticut, with a complementary exhibition of photographs from the show From Italy to America: The Photographs of Anthony Riccio, organized by the Bellarmine Museum of Art, Fairfield University, Fairfield, Connecticut. The exhibition takes place at the Historical Society’s Storehouse Gallery, Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 4 pm.
For the exhibition, residents of Italian heritage from all over town unearthed material and shared recollections of the individuals, institutions, events and traditions that shaped the Italian American community and the town. In addition to the images and objects in this exhibition, 45 participants’ stories were recorded on video. These interviews were edited into clips, which are shown at the exhibition.
