IN MEMORIA DEI LAVORATORI ITALIANI
CADUTI SUL LAVORO
In 2018, We were truly humbled and honoured that Villa Charities, along with the Committee for the Italian Fallen Workers Memorial Project and the fallen workers and their families, was presented with The Medaglia d’Oro al Merito Civile, one of the highest honours given by Italy. We have been asked to hold it in trust on behalf of the fallen workers, their families and our entire Italian-Canadian community. This is the first time ever that the honour was awarded in Canada.
