Palazzo Mezzanotte Featured

The controversial sculpture and unique architectural style is impossible not to capture on camera. 

by Henry Neuteboom

Piazza Affari is one of Milan’s few squares with a unitary architectural style, in this case the blend of Rationalism and Neoclassicism that developed during the 1930s. The Palazzo was designed by Paolo Mezzanotte as Milan’s stock exchange, based on studies of analogous buildings in Amsterdam, Paris, Zurich, Berlin and London. At the centre of the square, Maurizio Cattelan’s famous 2010 sculpture ‘L.O.V.E.’, acronym for Libertà, Odio, Vendetta, Eternità.
