Columbus Piazza in Little Italy, Baltimore

(corner of President Street & Eastern Avenue)

This monument to Christopher Columbus is carved in Italian Carrara marble and was dedicated on October 8, 1984 by former Mayor of Baltimore William Donald Schaefer and President Ronald Reagan. It depicts the discoverer facing east along Eastern Avenue into the rising sun - the direction from which the explorer's vessels arrived over 400 years ago. Each year the Italian community holds a Wreath-laying ceremony in Columbus Piazza before it hosts the Columbus Day Parade, in existence for over 125 years.

On the base appear bas relief carvings showing the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria, the explorer's birthplace

of Genoa, as well as the landing and meeting with the Indians of the new land.
