Italy is a culturally rich country and has shaped and produced some of the world's best art, architecture, and music.

Italians are very proud of their artistic heritage. The large majority of Italians are Roman Catholics, and this has its effect on their art and architecture. Museums and churches, plazas and statues, all over Italy, display the treasures of some of the famous artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Opera is also an important part of Italian life. Many Italians know the operas composed by Rossini, Verdi, Puccini, and Donizetti and some enjoy singing them while they work.

The Italians who immigrated to Canada and brought the art and music with them strive to keep these elements of their culture alive in their new nation.
