The Piazza Miramare will have its groundbreaking on October 20,2022. The European-style piazza is located at the corner of S. Harbor Blvd. and W 6th St. in the “heart” of Little Italy of Los Angeles in downtown San Pedro, California. A beautiful fountain will sit at the North end of the Piazza and the east side of the Piazza will host “The Waterfront Trellis”.

The waterfront shade trellis will offer an open space to sit and enjoy a coffee or lunch and watch the ships pass through the Port of Los Angeles. On the East side of the Piazza will be located the “Beacon Steps”. This terraced seating will be a great location to meet, watch, and relax. This Piazza is not meant to exclude other ethnic groups in our community; rather to invite them to the table to enjoy a slice of La Dolce Vita here in beautiful San Pedro.

The Piazza Miramare will be programmed and managed by the Little Italy of Los Angeles Association. At this location, LILAA will conduct programming that adds value to the residents of the City of Los Angeles. This programming will augment the cultural experiences for Angelenos, and attract people from all over the region, catalyzing the local economy. LILAA’s Board of Directors comprises of respected leaders of Los Angeles’ Italian- American community, with extensive experience on major projects and fundraising. The Board has already received substantial funding commitments from a multitude of sources. Moreover, dozens of people have contributed hundreds of volunteer hours to the effort.

It is expected that 100,000 people will visit the piazza and surrounding areas because of this programming during the first year alone.
