It was torn down by protestors on July 4th of this year and tossed into harbor.

Members of Baltimore’s Italian community worked to retrieve portions of it from the water with hopes of restoring the statue.

The agreement to return the statue will be finalized during Wednesday’s Board of Estimates meeting.
