I found out about the “Get Your Spire” project through a friend and I immediately decided to make a donation, but I ended up making three: one for myself, one for my beloved husband and one for my son, who now lives far away. I moved to Milan with my family when I was a child, and I have lived here my whole life. I am grateful to Milan; thanks to this city I met my husband, I had my son, and luck in my career. In the small village where I was born, I could never have opened my own clothing store to which I have dedicated 40 years of my life with passion. Every time I go to Piazza Duomo and I see the scaffolding for the restoration work, I always think that it is a perfect metaphor for the spirit of this city: it never stops working.
This city gave me everything I have and I’m very grateful. It is for this reason that I decided to pay tribute to its symbol and be a part of its history as, after all, Milan is a part of my history.
