About Us

Librissimi – Toronto Italian Book Festival is an event entirely dedicated to Italian Canadian books organized by ComItEs Committee of Italians Abroad, in the spirit of community service and cooperation.

The goal of Librissimi is to shine a spotlight on our writers no matter what language or dialect they write in, and to give as many readers as possible the opportunity to meet them and read their work. Librissimi is intended as a real celebration of Italian Canadian books as well as Italian Canadian culture in all its literary expression.
