Convivio Society is excited to partner with organizations throughout San Diego County to provide a variety of enlightening and inspiring arts, culture, and heritage programming including presentations, workshops, film screenings, exhibitions, and more . You’ll find something to suit your taste no matter what you’re looking for in Italian sensibility.
Convivio’s Amici House, located at 250 W. Date Street in Little Italy, serves as the event, heritage, and visitor center for Little Italy—providing a host of programs and events, cultivating a space where you’ll find an inspiring community and culture. Our charming historic cottage has both indoor and outdoor space for special event. We are elated that we had two recent events that were a huge success.
PAINTING AND CONVIVIALITY
Two weeks ago, Our Lady of the Rosary Guild held a paint party at the Amici House led by Trisha Ross and Amanda Ramirez from Bluebird Tweets Studio. Antonia Calia-Buono from Rovino the Foodery provided delicious appetizers and the group of more than 20 ladies had a great evening of socializing and painting.
And on Friday, Aug. 27, a group of Home Depot employees joined Convivio’s go-to Limoncello class expert, Giuseppe from Cucina Caprese, for an evening learning the process of making the infamous, classic Italian beverage. Much to their delight, when they were done receiving their lesson, Convivio’s guests were afforded the luxury of imbibing in the cocktail. We at Convivio are grateful to Home Depot for visiting our historic Amici House for an evening of fun and to Anthony Davi with San Diego Hospitality Group for making the arrangements.
