      Please join us at the Venetian Social Club
      Sunday, May 19th, 2019, 2-4 pm
      to welcome guest speaker
      Vanessa Lovisa-Gambin
      from Toronto, Canada.
      Vanessa will speak about her Ph.D. thesis entitled
      “Hold on and Stay Connected.” An Italian Immigrant Presence in Canada:
      Friulian Identity and Cultural Preservation, 1932-1990.
      This event is free to attend – an RSVP to president@efasce.net or Lisa at 215-247-1393 would be greatly appreciated.
      Vanessa’s family is from the region of Friuli Venezia-Giulia, Italy. Her maternal side is from San Giovanni di Casarsa, San Giorgio della Richinvelda, and Rauscedo, while the paternal side is from Fagnigola and Panigai (Pravisdomini), which are located a short distance from the city of Pordenone. She is heavily involved with Famee Furlane Toronto in her capacity as President of young social group the “20-Somethings.”
      Vanessa is studying 20th-century Canadian history, with an emphasis on immigration. Her dissertation focuses on Northern Italian immigrant roles within the communities they built in Canada in a pre and post WWII context, with a particular focus on cultural transmission and associational involvement. Vanessa completed her Honours BA and Masters in History at York University and is currently completing her Ph.D. at McMaster University.
      Please note that also on May 19th, the Chestnut Hill Business Association will be holding their annual Home and Garden Festival from 11am-4pm, closing parts of Germantown Avenue. Please arrive early to park in the Venetian Club’s Lot off Roanoke Street, or be prepared that you may need to walk a block or two.
      A presto,
      Lisa A. Roman
      President, EFASCE di Philadelphia
