This sculpture features an Italian American version of Charlie Brown, presumably by Tivoli Too (the 3D sculpting studio that created other Peanuts sculptures for St. Paul), that honors the early Italian American immigrants in St. Paul.

A plaque on the base reads:

Charlie Andiamo Americano
A symbol of the memory
Dal 1820-1965

For all our Italian ancestors who left their homes in heartache, in the hopes of living the American Dream. Armed with courage, strength, and blind faith, these immigrants came to homestead on what became known as St. Paul’s Little Italy, “The Levee,” around 1900. In appreciation of their spirit and desire to provide loved ones with a better life, we honor them as the first Italian American homestead with this tribute.

DEDICATED IN PRIDE WITH A DEEP LOVE OF BEING ITALIAN AMERICAN

Another plaque lists the families of the levee.
