Targeting bankers?

Follow-up to Public Art and public Morals from Giulia's blog

I don't know why but it seems there's a preference for displaying public art in financial districts.

Maybe because those working there are just too busy to look out of their office windows and if they pass by the artwork, they're always in a rush to go back to work? I really wonder if bankers are less likely to complain about artworks since they're busy with other stuff.

If you put a sculpture in a public park or in a place where people already gather in their free time, it really needs to be a good artwork as people will definitely take the time to look at it...

    Hi Giulia, sorry not to have commented on your blog for a while but reading them has been fascinating. You have painted a great picture of life in Milan, the park, the canal bars, the mirror exhibition etc etc. Your tone in your blog is perfect for this sort of writing. Are you writing a blog for your place of work too? I was interested in your findings about Facebook. I must admit, it isn’t something I know a lot about, from the commercial point of view, though I feel that it and Twitter are the two forms of social media that are leading the way.
