Opening Reception: Bedda Sicilia Terra di ‘Ncantu” by Marcello Tarantino

You are invited to this free event,

MARCELLO TARANTINO
presents

Bedda Sicilia Terra di ’Ncantu (Beautiful Sicily, Land of Enchantment)

his 12th annual photographic exploration of Italy

at

Carrier Gallery, Columbus Centre

901 Lawrence Avenue West, Toronto

in honour of Canadian Italian Heritage Month 2024

OPENING reception – Tuesday, June 4, 7-9 PM

Exhibition continues until June 28

In celebration of Italian Heritage Month 2024, Villa Charities and Viva Vitalità Italiana present a special exhibition featuring the astonishing beauty and magnificence of Sicily through the lens of Marcello Tarantino’s camera.

In this large photographic exhibition, Tarantino explores the length and breadth of Sicily, including Palermo, Catania, and Syracusa—and the smaller but no less charming Ortigia, Noto, and Enna —as well as Ragusa Ibla.

Calabrian-born and raised, Marcello Tarantino hopes to preserve his Italian cultural heritage through his work. He was inspired to travel throughout Italy and photograph the beauty he happened upon as part of his desire to embrace his roots. This was the inspiration for Viva Vitalità Italiana, which he founded in 1998.

His new book “Bedda Sicilia Terra di ’Ncantu: A Photographic Journey by Marcello Tarantino” will be launched during the opening night reception for the exhibition, with copies available for purchase.
