The Casa d'Italia was built in the mid-1930s as a social centre for the Italian community in Montreal.
It was designed by Patsy Colangelo.
The main part of the building is rectangular with a semi-circular office at one end. Stylised lettering above the windows on this circular end spell out the name 'Casa d'Italia". At the other end of the building, 'Maison d'Italie' is spelt out in the same style of lettering.
Past the entrance the building steps out is a nicely proportioned streamline curve giving some extra width to the hall portion of the centre.
The small foyer inside the entrance also features a fasces in the pattern of the floor.
