A petition has been started to replace a Christopher Columbus statue in Cleveland, Ohio with a statue of Chef Boyardee.
The petition reads, “If Italian-Americans in Cleveland want to celebrate one of their own, they need look no further than the iconic Ettore (Hector) Boiardi, AKA Chef Boyardee. Born in Piacenza, Ettore immigrated to the U.S. at age 16 in 1914. He eventually moved to Cleveland, where he opened a restaurant, Il Giardino d’Italia, that was so popular people asked him to bottle his sauce for them.”
