In the centre of the Piazza Affari in Milan, a giant 13-foot 'F-You' sculpture graces the Italian Stock Exchange with a stony curse. The entire monument is a towering 36-foot statement that is, ironically, titled 'L.O.V.E.'

Local artist Maurizio Cattelan is responsible for this outstandingly controversial 'F-You' sculpture which was dramatically unveiled with the City of Milan's full approval. The political piece brings a bit of humor and satire to stressful times.
