Convivio is a celebration of all things Italian,
a feast for the spirit; a plea for the resurgence of social capital;
embracing arts, culture, heritage, and community;
and exemplifying the best the Italian way has to offer.
This docustyle series is an authentic guided tour of some of the most beloved local Italian cuisine in America. It is a celebration of the universal truth that food is culture with the personal connections and stories around each dish providing a window into the modern Italian American experience. We will explore the neighborhoods, traditions, families, and personal narratives of Italian American culture through local Italian food.
Convivio Conversations is a dialogue series around issues of importance for the Italian American community. Our first discussion will focus on a recent issue surrounding the San Diego Symphony and its event, The Godfather Live and “mafia” party, as well as the current state of perceptions and media depictions of Italian Americans.
Coming this summer!
