Milano: Maurzio Cattelan - L.O.V.E. sculpture - Piazza Affari

Piazza Affari – Maurizio Cattelan Statue.  Look closely at this sculpture, because it is being taken down, probably before you even read this blog. The controversial Italian internationally renowned artist, Maurizio Catellan’s eleven meters high L.O.V.E. sculpture is/was placed in front of the Milan Stock Exchange. Originally entitled 'omnia munda mundis' in Latin meaning 'to the pure [men], all things [are] pure'.
Note: an exhibition of equally controversial works by Cattelan can be seen in the  Sala delle Cariatidi of Palazzo Reale until October 24th, 2010.
