Who We Are

Convivio Society for Italian Humanities (Convivio)

We're fostering culture, camaraderie, and connection to boot.
Let's all get reacquainted.


Convivio is a San Diego county nonprofit organization based in Little Italy. Convivio provides advocates, donors, and volunteers the organizational capacity to advance Italian cultural identity, preserve Italian cultural-heritage assets, cultivate community and fellowship, and foster multicultural awareness through the arts and humanities.

The 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 might 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.

What do you bring to the Convivio table?


Operated by Convivio, Amici House serves as the community and event center for Little Italy—providing a host of programs and events and cultivating a space where you'll find an engaging and inspiring hub for cultural fare.


Convivio also operates Caffè Caritàzza—a nonprofit coffee bar located on the Amici House patio—serving custom espresso drinks from locally roasted specialty beans, varietal tea, cold beverages, pastries, and a variety of food items and snacks.
