Special initiative Get your Spire and discover the Archive - 20th July 2015

On July the appointment with donors to discover precious documents and extraordinary stories returns

Next July 20, Get your Spire invites its donors to discover the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo di Milano Archive and the precious documents kept in this treasure chest in city center.

Since many years ago, the Archive shields, among others, the Fondo Ferrari, a series of documents fulfilled by doc. Eng. Carlo Ferrari da Passano, that testimonies the story of Duomo’s construction sites since 1961.

A number of notes report about the restoration activities on lantern’s pillars and other similar interventions inside the Cathedral.

An important example of how the Veneranda Fabbrica maintained its commitment toward the Monument, symbol of Milan  over centuries, to guarantee its protection and preservation, also thanks to important people as the engineer Ferrari.

The recalling of main characters in Duomo’s story allows to empathize every day with the link that joins Milan people and the Cathedral, thanks to its fundamental historical, artistic and cultural value. 

On next July 20 at 15.30 the guided tour will be the occasion to live again the Duomo’s story together with its donors.

The guided tours are open each day to a group of about 16 people, subject to availability. Each donor can come with a partner.
