At the Società Caruso our goal is to disseminate the Italian culture to the Greater Sudbury community. When we are exposed to a new culture, we are also learning a whole new culture – another way of thinking, seeing, and being in the world. It is our goal for you to learn about Italy and Italians in Sudbury in our very welcoming building. Benvenuti!!
The Società is home to two banquet halls in which a wide variety of events are held. The Enrico Restaurant is also open every day for lunch and dinner with a delicious array of Italian cuisine. If you don’t feel like cooking, take advantage of our take out counter that offers a complete menu of Italian foods.
The Società is also home to the Bressani Library which houses a collection of volumes that cover Italian literature, cuisine, music, travel and many other aspects of Italian culture. The library also houses a huge collection of costumes that the Ladies’ Auxiliary has created over the years. Only members of the Società are able to borrow books, but anyone is invited to visit the library and consult its contents on site.
The Società also houses the Sudbury Italian Millennium Project which was created in 2000. The Project was created to celebrate the Italian presence in the City of Greater Sudbury. The Project is comprised of 600 photos delineating the arrival of Italians to the Sudbury area and the development of the community over time.
