Art in Unusual Places: Submarine rises out of a street in Milan, Italy

Regular readers know that, these days, art comes to the viewers as much as the other way around. But is it art if it's really an advertisement for an insurance company? The sub was docked here as part of a publicity stunt for Europ Assistance Italia.

Let us know.
