Group portrait of Italian Canadian men
Black and white photograph of a group of Italian Canadian men posing outdoors. All of the men in the photograph wear suits and are either wearing or holding onto hats. Dr. Donato Sansone, is standing third from the left, and Nicola Zaza, standing second from the left, were both from Toronto. Both men were interned at Camp Petawawa during World War II, however Sansone was also interned at Camp Fredericton. While little is known about Dr. Sansone, both men seem to have run in the same circles. After his arrest, Zaza admitted to being a member of the fascio up until 1938. He left the organization because he had little time for it. He was also a member of the dopolavoro, the Italian War Veterans, and the Order Sons of Italy. It is unclear as to whether this photograph is related to any of these organizations.
The photograph features a geometric design around the border which is characteristic of the Art Deco style which first appeared in France during the 1920s, flourished internationally during the 30s and 40s.
