The launch of Mélanie Grondin’s The Art and Passion of Guido Nincheri takes place in the beautiful Art Deco building that houses the Centre communautaire de la Petite Italie – Casa d’Italia.

Guido Nincheri’s work has been appreciated by connoisseurs of stained-glass windows and frescoes in church interiors scattered across Canada and New England. A native of Prato, Nincheri trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and arrived in Montreal in 1913 where he eventually established his studio.
Mélanie Grondin holds an MA in Medieval Studies from the University of Leeds (UK) and is the editor of the Montreal Review of Books.
The Art and Passion of Guido Nincheri celebrates the life of the most prolific religious artist in North America.
