Italian Association in Comodoro Rivadavia. See map

The first wave of Italian immigration in Comodoro Rivadavia, in 1919 led to the formation of the Italian Association. About 150 Italian residents of the oil camps and the city joined in its conformation to preserve tradition and facilitate the unity of the members.

The institution became the link between the Italian fatherland and Comodoro and served to reinforce ethnic and cultural ties of immigrants. In some cases the expectations of partners aimed at medical-care coverage, in others, the interest came from the recreational and cultural activities.

In general, the Italians wanted to keep their customs, speak their native language, participate in festivals and talk about their homeland.

Merchants, self-employed and professionals did the great human contribution to the formation of the Italian Association, as oil workers and the railroad did not come close in number to the Association.

The work rate of oil or railroad workers did not leave much time for recreation, so did not participate in recreational and cultural activities of the Association. Moreover, oil companies, as Fiscal Oilfields, offered their employees health coverage and housing, among other services.

Currently, the institution develops social, cultural and recreational activities, teaches language and some native dances. It is also one of the cofounders of the Committee on Foreign Communities.

Year after year participates in the Fair of the Communities in which it shows its meals, pizzas and pasta, wine and dances.
