The most recent and much discussed artwork by Maurizio Cattelan arrived today in Milan’s Piazza Affari, in front of the Italian Stock Exchange building. The controversial monument is made in marble, about 4 metres high and has been allocated on a base that brings the sculpture to a total height of 11 metres. During construction, the famed italian artist changed the title from ‘Omnia munda mundis’ – literally meaning ‘to the pure [men], all things [are] pure’, a latin sentence that has entered a relatively common usage in many countries – to ‘L.O.V. E.’
