    MONTREAL, Aug. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - As part of the Montreal's Italian Week,
Magnus Poirier is the proud sponsor of the Puccini Exhibition featuring
original costumes from Puccini's operas dating back to the 1890s - 1920s. This

will be presented in Canada.

85 years and it is an honor for us to present to all who will take part in the
various activities of this 15th edition of the Montreal's Italian Week an

Poirier's President and CEO Claude Poirier.
    The exhibition will be open from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday to Sunday,
August 15 to 17 inclusively, under the tent, corner of St. Laurent and Dante.
