Piazza Pescatore


Since the inception of the Little Italy Association of San Diego in 1996, we have prided ourselves on creating a neighborhood that’s walkable and community oriented—a place where people want to stop, sit and enjoy the experiences that San Diego’s Little Italy has to offer.

In 2013, the Little Italy Association started working with Alliance Residential to create a unique and intimate Piazza, known as Piazza Pescatore, at their new development—Broadstone Little Italy. The new Piazza Pescatore will 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.

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. After a long process and reviewing viable sculptors, the Board of Directors selected local sculptor, Gregory Reade, to design and create a bronze sculpture for the new Piazza. 

In order to make Piazza Pescatore as memorable as the current and future Piazzas of Little Italy, we are seeking your help as a donor for this project. The Little Italy Association has put together three sponsorship levels that you can choose from—$1,000, $2,500 and $5,000.  Sponsors at these levels will receive a tile in the piazza that they can commemorate as they wish. 

Donors have various options to choose from that range from $1,000 to $5,000; they are:

  • $1,000 - 6"x6" Family Tile (Click here to view tile details)
  • $2,500 - 6"x12" Family Tile (Click here to view tile details)
  • $5,000 - 12”x12” Family Tile (Click here to view tile details)
