Corso Italia is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, situated on St. Clair Avenue West, between Westmount Avenue (just east of Dufferin Street) and Lansdowne Avenue. The neighbourhood includes numerous cafés, clothing shops, shoe stores, restaurants, food markets, as well as several gelaterias and bakeries. The community is considered Toronto's second Italian neighbourhood after Little Italy(pics) on College Street, although Corso Italia has a stronger Italian presence. There is also a significant Latin American and Portuguese community in the area. During the late 1950s a large wave of Italian immigrants, in addition to Italians from College Street, moved to Earlscourt and the surrounding area. Corso Italia has been a Business Improvement Area (BIA) in Toronto since 1984. Corso Italia hosts several annual festivals, including the Corso Italia Toronto Fiesta in July.
