We are pleased to present the exhibition “My Invincible Wife: The Erminia Tonelli Story” by Sholom Wargon. The images tell the story of a brave girl and woman who, with passion and positive energy, has touched the lives of many on both sides of the Atlantic. This exhibition, initially conceived as a personal tribute in memory of Erminia Tonelli, in many ways exemplifies the collective story of the Italian-Canadian diaspora of the postwar period. We can all relate to the images of Erminia’s childhood in Italy, as well as to the later photographs of her communing with nature.
As we join Sholom Wargon in this very personal journey, the character and qualities of his Invincible Wife quickly come to the fore. Slowly but surely we develop our own personal connection with Erminia Tonelli: a wonderful woman full of courage, resilience, and love.
