Piazza Pescatore

The Piazza Pescatore was created in November of 2017 to honor the rich history of San Diego’s Little Italy by memorializing the tuna industry, which brought national recognition to our neighborhood in the 1970s and 1980s.

In partnership with Alliance Residential, the Little Italy Association created this unique and intimate plaza, at their development, Broadstone Little Italy.

The Little Italy Association’s Board of Directors felt the best way to adorn this new public space was to immortalize our history in bronze and classic mosaic tile work. After a long process and reviewing viable artists, the Board of Directors selected local sculptor, Gregory Reade, and mosaic artist, Kim Emerson
