      This coming Sunday, March 6, 2011, the Quebec Chapter of the National Congress of Italian Canadians is hosting its second annual International Women’s Day festivities. The event will be held at the Centro Leonardo Da Vinci in St Leonard, from 2:00PM to 6:00PM.

      In keeping with this year’s theme – La Nuova Realtà – the festivities will begin with a screening of the documentary film, Straniera come Donna, by Anita Aloisio. Following the screening will be a panel discussion between the filmmakers Anita Aloisio and Agata De Santis [yup, that’s me], moderated by attorney Margherita M. Morsella. This year’s woman of distinction award will be presented to CFMB radio host Ivana Bombardieri. The afternoon will end with the opening of sculptor Stella Pace’s art exhibit, and with a cocktail.

      Admission is free, and the Congress is encouraging the community to attend. For further information, please (514) 279-6357.
