Tony Falcone, 2002.  Photo by David Ridley of the Heritage Community Foundation.Mr. Falcone was born in 1935 in Celico, Calabria, Italy and emigrated to Canada in 1959. He is a well-known teacher and educator in Edmonton and retired in 1999. He was the first teacher of the Dante Alighieri Scuola di Lingua e Cultura Italiana (the Italian Language and Culture School) and was also instrumental, with Dr. Tony Caria and Tony Petrone, in setting up the Italian language programs within the Edmonton Separate School system and, ultimately, provincially. He has been active as a volunteer in the Italian community of Edmonton, Alberta. He participated in the Italians Settle in Edmonton Oral History Project.

The interview was conducted by Adriana Albi Davies, Ph.D., Executive Director, and David Ridley, Director of Research and Learning, Heritage Community Foundation on July 3, 2002, as a part of the Celebrating Edmonton's Italian Community Oral History Project, funded by the Edmonton Community Lottery Board.
