In collaboration with the Duomo and Opera d’Arte in Milan, international art collective Cracking Art Group created and placed 50 blue snail sculptures on the cathedral’s roof to call attention to much-needed repairs and restoration. The snails are made from recycled plastic and allude to the gradual deterioration of the architecture.
