Made in Canada: The Italian Way is an up-close exploration of the Italo-Canadian entrepreneurial spirit – a success that is the lucky marriage of the immigrant belief in hard work and the Canadian openness to innovation and enterprise. We enter the complex world of three extraordinarily successful families: the Ciccolinis, the Pillitteris and the Chiodos; business leaders in insurance, wine-making, and automotive franchises. These are families whose patriarchs left a post-war Italy, devastated and limping from the ashes of defeat. This is the story of their ability to be inventive, tough-minded and resilient in the building of their empires in Canada.
