Come On-A My House - Growing Up Italian In Hamilton's North End

Come On-A My House – Growing Up Italian in Hamilton’s North End is an exhibition that began fortuitously. Andrea Malloni, granddaughter of Anita Malloni who had passed away in early 2010, came in with a book under her arm. It was a tribute that she and Len her dad and son of Anita, had put together for family members.

The book includes remarkable family photographs dating as far back as the 1920’s, as well as recipes from Anita’s own hand-written recipe book. The photographs reveal the story of Italian immigrant family and their life in Hamilton’s North End on Bay Street North where Anita’s parents and her own house still stand today. The recipes reveal a culture of food, from taralli, to stuffed Ascolano olives, to ravioli. All done Anita’s way.

The exhibition includes dozens of photographs and a 15 minute multi-media piece that tells the story of Anita Malloni. Of her marriage to Umberto. Of her children Laura, Rosemarie, Len and Albert.

Whether you’re Italian, or another nationality whose family came to Canada and to Hamilton in particular, you’ll see your own family history reflected in this exhibition.

I was on James st. north today and hoped to look at the exhibition on growing up Italian in Hamilton - but despite your hours being posted as 11-5 (I think) and it was about 2 p.m you were closed! So I tried to take some photos of the displays in the window - but when are you open, if not at the posted days and hours?

Seems like the right decision to ban the Iranian's rediculous atire. It is the Iranians that are out of step,
not the rest of the world. If the Iranians want to be part of the international scene, they should stop wanting
exceptional treatment. -Glashutte Original Watches
