Francis Lazarro Rizzo, Sr. (October 23, 1920 – July 16, 1991) was an American police officer and politician. He served as Philadelphia police commissioner from 1968 to 1971 and mayor of Philadelphia from 1972 to 1980.
 
A statue of Mayor Rizzo waving in greeting, created by sculptor Zeno Frudakis, stands in front of Philadelphia's Municipal Services Building. The ten-foot-high statue was paid for by private contributions. In his hometown neighborhood of South Philadelphia, a mural portrait of Rizzo is found at the Italian Market on Ninth Street.
 
Following the aftermath of the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Councilwoman Helen Gym posted on Twitter, "All around the country, we're fighting to remove the monuments to slavery & racism. Philly, we have work to do. Take the Rizzo statue down".
 
Gym's comments started a public debate about the future of the Rizzo statue and mural. Mayor Jim Kenney was open to the possibility, stating that "it is time to discuss the future" of the monument. The Philadelphia Green Party also made a similar call for the removal of his statue. On Nov. 4, 2017, Mayor Kenney announced that the statue will be relocated.
