      A unique photo exhibit by Luigi Pasto is on display at the Casa d’Italia, located at 505 Jean-Talon Street East in Little Italy. Cantina features gorgeous black and white photographs of proud Italian Montrealers inside their home cantinas. Pasto’s exhibit is an homage to the Italian immigrant experience and a unique photojournalistic essay. The exhibit is open nightly from 6:00PM to 9:00PM until August 15. Admission is free.
