The gateway arch over Atwells Avenue anchors the La Pigna (“Pine Cone”) sculpture hanging from its center. Often mistakenly referred to as “The Pineapple,” La Pigna is a traditional Italian symbol of abundance and quality and has become the symbol of Federal Hill. Another version of La Pigna can be found on top of the water fountain in DePasquale Plaza.
