Submarine Rises Through Milan Street

Offbeat

Milanese awake to find something amiss in the heart of the old city.

There must have been plenty of head scratching and cursing in the heart of Milan this morning, as just off the Via dei Mercanti, a submarine could be seen having seemingly risen from the depths, up through the thoroughfare’s paving stones. Surveying the scene with espresso and smartphone in hand, the local Milanese took to Twitter to broadcast the unusual sight. Of course, this was nothing more than a ridiculous publicity stunt by an Italian insurance group who arrived in the early hours to construct the fake submarine complete with broken-up paving and Cinquecento.
