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 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
