This exhibition proposes multiple routes through which we invite you to experience the richness of Italian-Chinese relations, the longest-standing intercultural communication between Europe and China on written record. We also bring this experience home — how does Chinese-Italian communication thrive in the Greater Toronto Area?

We invite you to leave your comments and photographs of Italian-Chinese connections in the designated areas of the exihibition. Be sure to take a look at the materials in the exhibition cases nearby. Come and celebrate the Chinese-Italian transcultural past and present and help the two communities develop stronger ties in the future!

Questa esposizione presenta diversi percorsi attraverso i quali vi invitiamo a conoscere l’abbondanza delle relazioni italo-cinesi, che costituiscono la testimonianza documentata più duratura fra Europa e Cina. Daremo un’occhiata anche al contesto canadese — come si articolano i rapporti tra la comunità italiana e quella cinese nella città metropolitana di Toronto?

Vi invitiamo a lasciare testimonianze (commenti e fotografie) che riguardino le connessioni fra Italia e Cina sui tabelloni designati e ad ammirare i materiali contenuti nelle vetrine.

Unitevi a noi nel celebrare il presente e il passato del legame transculturale italo-cinese, e contribuite alla crescita dell’amicizia fra le due comunità in futuro!

中國與義大利之間的文化交流源遠流長。我們參考了目前可追遡的各種文獻,重整出中義交流的若干條路線,在這次展覧展出。另外,這次展覧亦對多倫多的中義關 係作出探檢,研究本地華人及義裔社團的演變和成長。 除了展覧,我們亦劃出了一個區域作交流用,歡迎大家留下有關中義文化的意見和照片,希望大家可以跟我們一同分享中國和義大利的過去和現在,並在將來進行更 緊密的交流!
