Milan is the capital of fashion and contemporary design.

It is a city that changes every time, looking for new trends and opportunities without losing its class and elegance.

Also the manholes become artistic and give colours to the city and the streets of fashion. Until January 2016 the famous quadrangle of fashion will be transformed into a special art gallery.

Street art and fashion are mixed together:  there are 24 mixed manholes designed and signed by the most exclusive brands that colour the streets of the centre: names such as Prada, Versace, Valentino, Ferragamo, Hogan, Cucinelli, Just Cavalli, and many others.

The Open Air Show “Over the Under – Manhole Art tells the story of a Cabled City” is not only a way to make lively a city such as  Milan,  at the end of the exhibition, the manholes will be restored and auctioned by Christie’s; the amount will be donated to the no-profit organization Oxfam Italy, which is active in the development of food farming projects in the most disadvantaged Countries.
