Default "Canada Club"

Hello,

Just wondering if anyone on the forum knows if there was a "Canada Club" in either Florence, Italy or Naples, Italy during the Second World War?

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Craig

The CANADA CLUB in Rome was located in the Italian National Art Gallery on the Via Nationale.The Palazzo delle Esposizioni is a neoclassical exhibition hall, cultural center and museum on Via Nazionale in Rome, Italy.

Palazzo delle Esposizioni
Established 1883
Location: via Nazionale, 194
Rome, Italy

Designed by Pio Piacentini, it opened in 1883. It has housed several exhibitions (e.g. Mostra della Rivoluzione Fascista, Mostra Augustea della Romanità), and was temporarily modified during the fascist era due to its style being thought to be out of step with the times.

The building is owned by the City of Rome and the museum is administered by Azienda Speciale Palaexpo, an agency run by the City's Office for Education and Culture.

It has a 139-seat cinema, a 90-seat auditorium, a cafe, a large 240 person restaurant, a library and a multi-functional room known as the Forum.
