I have received a request to make a submssion for a monument to commemorate the Canadian Forces who took part in the Italian campaign in World War II. This is just the first step of the competition being held by a group of people of Italian heritage in Toronto. Not having much knowledge about the campaign I have been doing a lot of research, spending last weekend at the War Museum in Ottawa where I had access to the archives. There is also a huge amount of information on the internet and many books and publications - all helpful.
Sketches and a short description of proposals are all that is needed at this early stage, and these have to be submitted by June 27th. I'm working on it and hope to have my proposal in this coming Monday.
