Snail Troopers focus attention on Architecture Restoration

Here at DLA, we are great fans of architecture preservation and restoration. What an interesting and creative way to raise awareness about it in a city with such a wealth of architectural heritage!

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, a motif commonly used by the group, are made from recycled plastic and allude to the gradual deterioration of the architecture. What an incredibly fun and creative endeavor!
