Jim Brigante

This quarter’s San Diego Neighborhood lecture and tour will explore the 145-year development of downtown San Diego’s Little Italy from its settlement in 1871 as a predominantly Italian fishing community to today’s upscale neighborhood of art galleries, residences, restaurants, and businesses. The Saturday morning walking tour will discover hidden neighborhoods and historic homes in this unique San Diego community.

Instructor: Jim Brigante, a native San Diegan, grew up in Little Italy and lectures about the vibrant waterfront life of what formerly was the “tuna fishing” capital of the United States. He is a docent at the San Diego Maritime Museum and frequently lectures on the history and culture of Little Italy.
