About the event:

Fabrizio Nava will draw on his recent book "True North. Journey into the identity of Canada" (Rubbettino Editore) to explore what it means to be a Canadian nowadays and whether lessons from a multicultural society and its involvement in peacekeeping efforts globally can aid in navigating the complexities of an increasingly fractured world marked by conflicting elements and perspectives.
