New Developments in Philly's Columbus Statue Controversy

View descriptionShare

Dom welcomes in local attorney George Bochetto back onto the Dom Gioirdano Program. Bochetto has been a frequent guest on the show as the attorney for The Friends of Marconi Plaza, the group looking to protect South Philadelphia’s Christopher Columbus statue. In 2020, after Philadelphia’s Historical Commission voted for the statue’s removal, Friends of Marconi Plaza filed suit, which caused a plywood box to be erected around the statue, later removed by a court order. All of this has lead Bochetto and The Friends to file a new lawsuit against the City of Philadelphia hoping to hold City officials accountable for repeated overtly aggressive actions taken against the Italian-American community in Philadelphia. Bochetto explains the lawsuit, what he’s asking for, and tells what he hopes results once everything comes to fruition.
