Not Paved With Gold

By (photographer) Vincenzo Pietropaolo

This collection of stunning photographs and inspired commentary documents the lives of Italian immigrants to Toronto. Award-winning photographer and cultural historian Vincenzo Pietropaolo has spent much of his life taking pictures inside the tightly knit Italian-Canadian community. While the images in this book are part of the fabric of life in Toronto, they transcend the specificity of place to evoke the lives of immigrants in cities around the world.

With a foreword by novelist Nino Ricci, and context provided by the photographer, Not Paved with Gold pays tribute to the broad spectrum of the immigrant experience.
