ICAP Sbarco a Ellis

Landing at Ellis Island 

Dubbed the “Island of Tears” for the many who were turned away, Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States from 1892 until 1954. Many of these were Italians who eventually travelled north of the border into Canada. Told through firsthand accounts and personal testimonies, Sbarco a Ellis (Landing at Ellis) chronicles the emotion-filled journeys of three Italian Canadian women and their families, including award-winning Canadian writer, novelist and essayist Terri Favro.
