Little Italy - San Diego - California

The Little Italy Landmark Sign was dedicated and lit at the 7th Annual Little Italy Festa on the evening of October 8, 2000. The landmark sign was constructed as a tribute to this immigrant neighborhood which, until the late 1960s, was the hub of the world's tuna fishing and canning industry. The nautical theme can be seen in the portholes at the top of the pillars, the blue neon of the lettering and the cable span which holds up the sign. The mosaic tile work on each side of the street tells how this immigrant community is historically tied to the bay, the church and the Italian homeland. This sign is a testament to the preservation of Little Italy's cultural heritage and to the ongoing reitalization of this dynamic urban ethnic neighborhood in Downtown San Diego. This sign was designed and create by: The Little Italy Design Committee, The Little Italy Association Board, New City America, Inc. Deform, Mielke Design, UltraSign.
