Created by the artist Mario Lupo in 1986 thanks to the contribution of the Sambenedettesi City Club, the monument dedicated to Seagull Jonathan Livingston, unforgettable protagonist of the book written by Richard Bach, is located along the southern pier promenade, named "Jonathan's way".

The work, projecting for 10 m. into the blue sky and sea, encloses in a blue circle the life of both seagulls and waters. It is the symbol of the generous and operative laboriousness by the people from San Benedetto del Tronto, constantly trying to do their best for their city. It's the symbol of their will and obstinacy, so typical of sailors well used to silently face and overcome obstacles and difficulties while achieving new goals.
