The Convivio Center is the vision of Founder & Executive Director, Tom Cesarini, to create a social, educational, and cultural center for Little Italy in San Diego, California.

The most common questions asked are, “What is Convivio” or “What does Convivio mean?”.  Dante Alighieri, Father of the Modern Italian Language produced the literary work entitled Convivio, in which he famously commented on the philosophy and culture of the time.  In other terms, Convivio is also a state of mind and way of life, whenever you observe a group of friends breaking bread, enjoying each other’s company and conversation, as Italians most famously appreciate, this is the essence of Convivio.

The Convivio Center serves as a cultural exhibit space, espresso bar, artisan shop, art gallery, library, archive center, museum, and concert hall.  The Little Italy Heritage Museum is a vital component of the Convivio Center. The museum has on display Italian-community photographs and other artifacts in order to preserve the community’s cultural heritage.

Achieving these goals may be attributed to the Italians who positively shaped the history of San Diego, serving as motivation for the new generation of Italian-Americans who wish to preserve their ethnic heritage, while promoting Italian Culture to everyone who calls San Diego home.   Discover more about the Convivio Center.
