A giant green apple has appeared in the piazza del Duomo in Milan! It is eight meter high and completely covered in natural grass. The installation is ‘Terzo Paradiso La Mela Reintegrata‘ (Third Paradise – The Reinstated Apple) and will be on display from the 3rd to 18th of May. It was created by artist Michelangelo Pistoletto using the apple as a symbol of creation and life.

“The symbol of the apple is the whole history we have behind us, starting from the bite, which is the separation of mankind from nature and origin of the artificial world as it grew to the size of today’s all-encompassing. The apple is reinstated with entry into a new era in which the artificial world and the natural world are reunited producing a new planetary balance. The Third Paradise aims to reconcile different polarities as nature and artifice and can only be realized through the assumption of collective social responsibility.” – Michelangelo Pistoletto
