1. Mayor Nick C. Nuccio Marker
Inscription. Born in Tampa on October 24, 1901, the son of Sicilian immigrants, Vincenzo and Rosalia Nuccio. Mayor Nick C. Nuccio was born on Eighth Avenue, where he lived much of his life. He passionately believed in conducting his personal and professional life in a way that met the highest standards of integrity and exemplary character. His tenure as the first Latin Mayor of Tampa helped to pave the way for others of similar origin to find success in public service. His partner in life for more than 65 years was his devoted wife, Concetta Licata. Together they reared a wonderful family that included a son, Vincent and daughters, Rosalie (Lillie) and Marietta. Mayor Nick C. Nuccio was perhaps the most beloved politician in Tampa's history. He died on August 26, 1989.
