Protasio Neri, a skilled statuary cutter, began working for the Hallowell Granite Works in 1879. He came from a suburb of Carrarra, Italy and was one of the first Italian artisans to arrive in Hallowell. He carved one or more figures on the Plymouth Monument. He was heavily involved with the Granite Cutters Union and the 5 and 1/2 month lockout in 1892.
