Half the community of Schreiber, Ontario originated in the town of Siderno in Calabria, Italy. Cosimo Figliomeni, who started work on the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1905, is the grandfather and great-grandfather of practically all the Italians living in Schreiber today, and the link between the Figliomeni and Speciale clans. It is this shared history that accounts for the strong sense of community in Schreiber and explains why the Italian families are especially close-knit; not to mention the confusing fact that so many of them carry the same name. There remains an abiding affection towards their ancestors, a deep-rooted sense of connection and the conviction that they continue to build on the pioneering efforts of their forefathers. Produced by Patricia Fogliato and David Mortin. In French: Petite Italie du Lac Superieur, La: Les Italiens de Schreiber
