Italy, By Way of Ontario

Ah to be in Toronto over the next couple of weeks. No, not to see the Maple Leafs play (even though they’re not doing too too bad this season), but rather, to take in a trip to the Royal Ontario Museum and see their new exhibition, Italian Arts & Design: The 20th Century. It’s all about how Italian design helped influence nearly everything across the globe. From the typewriter to the Vespa, it’s all here, and we wish we could be there. If you’re in driving distance, or even a quick hop across one of the mighty lakes, like here in Chicago, it comes highly recommended. Drop us a line if you swing by. We’d love to see some photos and get the good word on it all.
