Kiss Me Cordusio
Wednesday 14 July 2021
Mr. Savethewall invades Piazza Cordusio in Milan with his iconic frogs, to accompany the renovation of The Medelan, the new look of the historic Palazzo del Credito Italiano.
106 "Kiss Me", more than 2 meters high and entirely handmade by the artist, form a street frieze along the entire perimeter of the building. An unprecedented installation, which celebrates Milan, its particular energy and its inhabitants, as well as the desire to restart.
The frog is a symbol of prosperity and wealth, protection and luck.
The frog is capable of making metamorphosis like what each of us symbolically does several times in our life,
generally in correspondence with fundamental moments.
I wanted to bring these 106 frogs to such a visible point in Milan,
leaving the passer-by the possibility to choose which message to draw ".
- Mr. Savethewall
"We are happy with this interesting installation, with a profound meaning and which will certainly win the attention of passers-by. We are at the forefront of innovative architecture, with the aim of bringing added value to people's quality of life and to shape the cities of tomorrow. "
- Antoine Castro, CEO of Paref Group
