On June 22, 2013 North End Stories founder Jeanne Dasaro curated and hosted a pop-up Italian-American cultural museum to highlight the Italian heritage in Boston’s North End. Below are photos from the event as well as a video.

The project was made possible by a grant from The Boston Foundation’s new initiative, Expressing Boston. Through ExpressingBoston, the Foundation seeks to diversify the types of art created and presented in Boston and challenge normalized definitions of art. ExpressingBoston hopes to advance a dialogue that explores all kinds of audience engagement and participation that connects with global classics, traditional canons from across the world, and interpretations of varied traditions that reveal the astounding vibrancy of our city.
