For the eighth consecutive year, The West End Museum marks Italian Heritage Month by recognizing individuals of Italian descent for their contributions to preserving the culture of the West End and its rich immigrant history. Italian Heritage Month Honoree Night takes place on Tuesday, October 3 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Honoree presentations will be followed by a reception with light refreshments. The event is FREE and open to the public.

Prior to the demolition of Boston’s West End during urban renewal, many Italian-American families called the neighborhood home. The Museum celebrates this former little piece of Italy along with old and new residents of Italian descent. The 2017 Italian Heritage Month honorees are Bruno Robertoand Gloria Ganno.
