Blue plastic snails fund Milan cathedral restoration


(ANSA) - Milan, October 5 - Fifty light-blue plastic snails
are to go on show on the upper terrace of Milan's cathedral to
help raise money for restoration.
The installation, entitled 'Regeneration', is the work of
the international art collective Cracking Art Group and aims to
generate funds to restore the main spire that supports the
statue of Milan's famed golden Madonnina.
The snails, weighing 13 kg each, will be on show from
October 8-13.
Blue has been chosen to evoke the Madonna's veil and the
water of regenerative baptism.
The artists have also created a limited edition of 100
smaller snails that will be on sale for a minimum of 1,000 euros
each at the Glauco Cavaciuti Arte gallery.
Net proceeds will go to the Venerable Factory, the
organisation responsible for maintaining and restoring the
Donations will also be accepted at an inaugural dinner on
October 8, prepared by the celebrity chef Gualtiero Marchesi.
