The Convivio Society in San Diego which "...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 humanities," has created Italian San Diego to "cultivate and promote fellowship within San Diego’s Italian community." The site wants to unite the Italian community in a "virtual piazza" that will have resources including links to Italian organizations, a business listing, special offers in partnership with local merchants, and a blog with articles relevant to the Italian community of San Diego, and more. I encourage all Italian and Italian American clubs and organizations that have a Statewide presence join and support Italian San Diego, including the organizations and sponsors of this almanac, of The Italifornian. I pray many Italian-owned and/or themed businesses that have a location in the San Diego area will also want to sign up for its business listing and partner with it on special offers that would be a positive marketing tool. You can view the home page here, the Organizations listing here, and its Business listing here. To sign up as an organization or business, pleaseclick here.
