Welcome to the Italian Walk of Fame
From the city that is home to the largest community of Italians outside of Italy comes the world’s first Italian Walk of Fame (IWOF). Located in the heart of Toronto’s famous downtown tourist destination known as “Little Italy,” and co-founded by Jimi Bertucci and Marisa Beaco Lang, the IWOF pays tribute to the extraordinary achievements of Italians, locally and globally, in all fields including business, science, art, film, theatre, finance, medicine, literature, architecture, religion and politics. The official launch of this historic event took place on Monday September 7th, 2009. Celebrations include a red carpet unveiling ceremony followed by a gala awards dinner.
