Ancient Memories, Modern Identities stands for pagan, peasant memories in a postmodern, urban North America. Salvatore recounts the history of Italian settlement, the formation of Little Italys in cities like Montreal and Toronto, the deleterious impact of fascism, and presents the birth and development of Italianese literature, beginning in the 1920s up to the present.There is an entire section dedicated to Paul Tana's films such as Caffè Italia, Montréal, and La Sarrasine, and Patricia Fogliato and David Mortin's Enigmatico are discussed.
