The Italian Vegetarian Association was founded by Aldo Capitini in 1952. A.V.I. represents a historical association, that promotes dialog and understanding, founding its roots in a non-violent and pacifist approach. The Association has always welcomed vegetarians, vegans, fruitarians, raw foodists, and sympathizers. The mission of A.V.I. is not to “convert” people, but to inform and create awareness, in order to encourage free choice. It promotes difference, tolerance, and dialogue to guarantee respect for the rights of all.
