About Italy Inspires Canada series:
The Consulate General of Italy, the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, the Department of Italian Studies University of Toronto, L’Altra Italia, and ISSNAF Ontario, in November 2015 inaugurated a series of “Colloquia”, two per year, to showcase Italy at the forefront of science, art and technology. All invited speakers will be absolute protagonists who have made a significant contribution to the prestige of Italy's image around the world and who will bring to Toronto audiences a unique and personal testimony of talent, creativity and top-quality results. The objective is to engage and enthuse Canadian friends, creating the possibility of debating common issues through the experience of Italian leading figures.
Italy Inspires Canada has commenced with Captain Samantha Cristoforetti — first Italian female astronaut, first Italian female of the European Space Agency team, and the only woman to have spent the most time in space in a single voyage (200 days) during the FUTURA mission.
The series is dedicated to prof. Emilio Goggio (1885-1979), a leading pioneer in the field of Italian Canadian Studies.
