Lesson 2: Ortenzio & Carla Sicoli
Susamelle, Pitticelle, Ratatouille
From July 2014 to February 2015, Sarah Febbraro, a second-generation Italian herself who grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, personally learned how to make sausages, roasted red peppers, pasta, crostoli, giardinara, and pitticille amongst other traditional Calabrese recipes from first-generation Italian immigrants living in Sault Ste. Marie. The results of this year long project culminated in a solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Algoma.
Kitchen in the Basement: Lessons from Italian Canadians was created in collaboration with artist Sarah Febbraro, members of Sault Ste. Marie’s Italian Canadian community, The Art Gallery of Algoma and The Marconi Club.
This project was funded by the Ontario Arts Council.
