Please, Free Her!

Unveiled sculpture by Sandro Chia, Scoglio della Regina, Livorno
This new sculpture has been in the piazza of the Scoglio della Regina for more than a year, still covered and waiting for a formal unveiling. The wind disagrees and has repeatedly unveiled partially the body, which has been covered again, to no avail. Please free this statue, soon and for good!
