Women and Donors

For Women’s Day, Get your Spire thanks the donors of all time

For over six hundred years citizens have been engaged in protecting the great work of art that majestically silhouettes on the background of the history of Milan through the centuries: the Cathedral.

From the very beginning, the citizens decided to support the construction of this very important Monument, thanks to an incredible variety of donations: not only money, but also more or less worth objects, clothes and many other things.

All these donations have always been registered by the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo, that still keeps many of its patrons’ names in its Archive.

By passing through pages of these really precious documents, a unique example of a so deep engagement by people, it is possible to find thousands of women’s names who, over the centuries,  decided to link their memory to the beloved Cathedral.

In this day dedicated to women and to the celebration of their strength and sensibility, Get your Spire wishes to remember all the donors who over the time supported, and still do that, this project for the protection and preservation of the Milan Cathedral,  with all its brightness as a cultural good, recognized and appreciated all over the world.

As well as once women contributed to the Cathedral construction, today they can still do the same and help Get your Spire to carry on restorations, needed for the preservation of the historical Monument.

For Women’s Day, starting from today, Get your Spire decided to honor all its donors who will decide to keep on supporting us, with a thank you note and a serigraphy of the Madonnina’s face printed on rice paper, which could be picked up at the Donations Office.
Moreover, a special certificate created for this occasion, which can be also requested by e-mail to donazioni@duomomilano.it, will be given for each new donation from € 50,00.

Get your Spire rely on sensibility, so as to keep writing the Milan Cathedral’s history with and for all women, who this way become ambassadors for culture and artistic values in front of the world, that every day admires this symbol of diligence and industry of the human kind.
