Ah yes, Italian born sculpture, Maurizio Cattelan‘s new work arrived in Milan today, in front of the stock exchange. The sculpture is meant to be a part of a larger exhibit of Cattelan’s work at the Museum Palazzo Reale. After the sculture’s placement, officials of the Palazzo Marino (the city’s town house) were not exactly pleased with the 11-meter high marble EFF YOU which is cheekily called “L.O.V.E.” Unfortunately, it will only be on view for the next 10 days; although it will surely get a lot of visits in that time because it is fashion week in Milan.
