Convivio cultivates community and fellowship, advances Italian cultural identity, and fosters multicultural awareness in the arts and humanities through education and research, social enrichment, and innovative programming.
Convivio is a celebration of community, a feast for the spirit, a plea for the resurgence of social capital, at once exemplifying the best of an Italian cultural sensibility while exploring multicultural connections in the arts and humanities.
Convivio strives to be San Diego’s premier Italian cultural organization—promoting Italian arts and culture as well as exploring the arts and humanities through a multicultural lens—and embracing innovative approaches to cultural advancement. As a learning organization with a culture of inquiry as its foundation and an emphasis on community development, cultural diversity, and increased social awareness, Convivio has the following objectives:
* Encourage dialogue and collaboration with multicultural partners
* Cultivate partnerships with academia
* Promote the study of Italian language, arts, and culture
* Support scholarly research in Italian Studies
* Foster Italian community emerging leadership
* Provide scholarships and grants across scholarly disciplines
* Preserve Italian heritage and identity and relate the Italian immigrant experience
* Convivio sponsors events such as educational lectures, film screenings, heritage exhibitions, artisan showcases, and musical performances. Our auxiliary Web sites include ItalianArchives.org, the digital repository of Italian-community historical photographs, documents, and oral histories; and ItalianSanDiego.com, a virtual piazza for local Italian-community resources. Our newsletter, From the Italo-Files, highlights the local Italian community news.
