ABOUT THE ITALIAN CULTURAL CENTRE AND JAZZ FOR BARB SERIES
Barbara Fudge was a passionate and loyal fan of jazz music. She could be seen all over the city at various jazz events talking and laughing with her friends, mingling with the musicians and enjoying a glass of fine wine. Her personality and laugh were contagious and although no longer with us, her larger than life spirit shines bright.

Following a mandate of promoting Italian culture, values and heritage and to share these values and traditions with other communities, Il Centro is Vancouver’s direct connection to Italian culture and is a space for language, music, food, arts, community initiatives, and much more.
