Twenty-four covers will decorate Montenapoleone Street until January 2016.

The ''Above the Below—Manhole Cover Art and the Wired City'' project is sponsored by Milan's fiber optic company Metroweb. The concept behind the project is to beautify the cover which conceals the wires and cables which add up to Milan's information technology highway.

Pieces created as part of the project have in the past been auctioned for charity at Christies.

Walking with your head down in Milan will be popular!
