Father Giovanni Bonelli arrived in Edmonton from
Chicago in 1957 because of a demand by the Italian community
of Edmonton for their own parish. He and Father Rino
Ziliotto were sent by the Scalabrini Fathers in Chicago to
fill the need.
The interview was conducted by Sab Roncucci for the Dante Alighieri Oral History Project in 1973.
This oral history project was initiated by Sabatino
Roncucci, a founder of the Dante Alighieri Society, for the
purpose of documenting immigration history so that it
could be shared not only with the Italian community but also
the community at large.
