Panettone is the typical Milanese dessert at Christmas.

Its shape is easily recognizable (see our artwork) and so iconic that in the 80s designer Enzo Mari got inspired by a panettone while designing one of the most effective traffic bumps in town, which was therefore named after the famous dessert.

Cement “panettoni” in Milan then inspired Pao, a famous Italian writer, who 10 years ago started painting these traffic bumps transforming them into funny penguins, small monsters, robots etc.

More recently also the duo Urbansolid got inspired by these cement “panettoni”, transforming them into ice-creams and cup cakes looking so real that you’d want to bite them.

Both Pao and Urbansolid play with colours to make the city less grey. Ready to find thesse graffitis and instagram them around Milan?
