Nicola received his first training in Italy from local barber Antonio Galati, who owned a salon near his house. He immigrated to Canada in 1967 and a few years later opened Sam & Nick Barber Shop with his partner Salvatore Roti. They had been partners for 35 years, until Sam retired to Wasaga Beach. Today, Nick is still one of the best barbers on College St.
Silvio Mastrodascio has amassed great acclaim over his decades as a sculptor, so you wouldn’t necessarily know that he only began to hone his craft in his thirties. Born in Cerqueto, Abruzzo, in 1943, the young Mastrodascio would paint landscapes and the houses of his rural hilltop village, but when it was time for a university education, he enrolled in a more-practical-than-creative demography and statistics course in Rome.
