WHAT IS CONVIVIO?
Convivio is a literary work by Dante in which he commented on the philosophy and culture of the day. Convivio is also a state of mind…Whenever you may see a group of people breaking bread together as the Italians so famously do—enjoying the moment, the company, and the conversation—that is the essence of Convivio. When you think of Convivio, think of love of life and culture.
With an innovative model and philosophy, and an emphasis on community development and social consciousness, Convivio strives to accomplish the following:
Convivio sponsors myriad events such as literary workshops, film screenings, educational lectures, interactive presentations, artistic exhibits, artisan showcases, and musical festivals. Our auxiliary Web sites include ItalianSanDiego.com, a virtual piazza for local Italian-community resources; and ItalianArchives.org, the digital repository of Italian-community historical photographs, documents, and oral histories. Our newsletter, From the Italo-Files, highlights the local Italian community news.
