A few steps from the city centre you can find Piazza Affari, whose profile was significantly raised by the arrival of Cattelan's famous and controversial “the Finger" sculpture. It’s the perfect backdrop for numerous photoshoots, especially during the many outdoor aperitifs that are organized here.
The Italian artist's sculpture is entitled L.O.V.E., an acronym for "Freedom, Hate, Revenge, Eternity" and is a symbol of protest against financial tycoons. Precisely for this reason, it was installed in front of the Palazzo Mezzanotte, the headquarters of the Milano Stock Exchange.
The supposedly temporary monument is now a permanent fixture in the piazza following a decision taken by the municipality of Milano.
