Are you or one of your family members a migrant to Alberta, with military service in Italy? Or do you have any ancestors or friends who settled in Alberta, and served in a military capacity with the Italian armed forces? The Military Museum of Calgary is seeking individuals to share stories relating to their Italian military experience.
The Military Museum of Calgary is also particularly interested in learning about artworks or artifacts relating to individuals’ stories, or the places in which they served.
The Military Museum of Calgary interest is global in scope, including experiences spanning national armed forces or conscripts, informal militia service, volunteers, guerrilla forces, freedom fighters, child soldiers and medics. The material they are compiling will be considered for inclusion in an exhibition at the University of Calgary's Founders' Gallery at The Military Museums in Calgary, in the fall 2021.
The aim of this project is to highlight and celebrate the wide range of nationalities that have settled in Alberta, both historically and more recently.
So if you wish to share a story please send your expression of interest by May 31, 2021 to Luigi Audia at email@example.com.
