ITALIAN FEST Exhibit & Film: A Trip of a Lifetime

Welcome to the Collinsville Italian Fest!  Our Italian exhibition (ITALY: UP CLOSE & PERSONAL) opens the festival on Sept. 1st and extends through Oct. 15.  This year, we’ll be partnering with seven, passionate, young Italians (the Va’ Sentiero group) in Italy as they walk the spectacular Grand Italian Trail!  At the exhibit (near the Main Desk), we’ll take you behind the scenes, show how they prepare for their journey, trekking supplies, etc. Through amazing photos, you’ll follow the path “with” them as they explore one of the most challenging expeditions on foot.  Collinsville Library, 408 Main Street.  (618) 344-1112   Free
On Thurs., Sept. 16, 6 p.m., meet us at the Collinsville Library (downstairs) for the award-winning documentary (VA’ SENTIERO: DISCOVERING THE GRAND ITALIAN TRAIL).  We’ll “join” our Italian friends as they experience the mountains, villages, food, people, and hospitality. It will touch your heart. CNN called it “the greatest of the Great Walks.” (Voted Best 2021 film at Italian Film Festival USA).  In Italian with English subtitles. Arrive early for a taste of gelato from Spirito’s, The Italian Store!  (618) 344-1112  (Check out the library’s children’s event on Fri. & Sat.)   Free
