Milan: Art on the Streets -The Don Gallery & City Council of Milan Public Art Works
Milan is well-known for its progressive fashion and design scene. The city has also been known to bring a sense of style to its streets, as it did with the custom-made, Fendi branded manhole cover laid down during fashion week.
Five artists (Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, The London Police, Flying Fortress & Rendo) have been invited to design four manhole covers for this collaborative public art project. The twenty, iron-forged designs will be laid down on Via Montenapoleone in Milan beginning November 2010 and will be left down for 1-2 years.
