Art installation of Yellow protest in Milan
The construction industry for the last few years is in decline around the world, including Italy. Italian workers from time to time hold demonstrations, one of them was recently in Milan. It was one of the most unusual in the world of rallies, because it involved not the builders, but their yellow helmets. Great number of them, ten thousand, were put on the area around the sculpture LOVE by artist Maurizio Cattelan.
On the one hand, this unusual political and economic installation of yellow helmets symbolizes the workers, dismissed during the crisis, on the other – the danger for the authorities and financiers, who themselves may be badly hit, when the patience of the working people will come to end.
For statistics. According to the Center for Economic Research and the sociology of the market over the past five years, beginning from 2008, the crisis in the construction industry around the world, either directly or indirectly affected 157 million companies and 893 million people.
