Additional material regarding the Italian immigrant
experience in Calgary is provided in a paper by David E. Aliaga titled
Italian Immigrants in Calgary: Dimensions of Cultural
Identity. The paper was based on interviews, conducted from January
of 1992 to February of 1994, of 144 men drawn from a sample of Italian immigrants in Calgary, including both southern and northern Italians. All respondents had come to the city of Calgary after the Second World War.
As well, a search through the issues of
Congresso, Alberta's Italian newspaper with offices in Edmonton
and Calgary, provides glimpses of contemporary issues of concern to
Calgary's Italian community.
