Saturday: Meet ‘Multicultural Man’

A statue depicting multiculturalism will be unveiled today (Saturday, Nov. 1) at 3 p.m. at Swinford Street and Harbor Boulevard, adjacent to the cruise ship terminal. The unveiling is part of the anniversary celebration of the sister cities relationship between San Pedro and Ischia, Italy.

The statue by Francesco Perilli has several counterparts around the world, including this one in Toronto, Canada.

The statue’s true-to-life anatomy has led some to question whether and where the artwork should be permanently displayed. The Daily Breeze has the story about today’s “revealing event.”
