The History Center's annual Bocce Tournament & Festival is an annual fundraiser that supports the Italian American Program. Founded in 1990, the Italian American Program at the History Center is dedicated to preserving the history and culture of Italian Americas in Western Pennsylvania. The program's collection at the Senator John Heinz History Center is one of the largest in the country and home to artifacts and archival materials that document the pivotal role Italian Americans play in shaping our region.
