Commonly known as the finger, it is a sculpture placed in the center of Piazza degli Affari in Milan.
Born from the hands of Maurizio Cattelan, the sculpture depicts a hand with the middle finger raised, while the remaining fingers are severed.
One of the interpretations proposed would have the hand represent a Roman salute, a gesture that with the absence of the fingers becomes unrecognizable.
On the occasion of Women’s Day, the artist Tresoldi in 2021 painted the nail with a pink nail polish in homage to the feminist movement.
