One thousand sheaves for a Spire

An event to support the fundraising project ‘Get Your Spire’ for the Duomo di Milano restoration works

 A great opening symposium in the heart of Milan to welcome Expo and support the restoration works of the Duomo. A stellar homage to Milan, to celebrate the opening of the World Fair in order to bring ‘nourishment’ to the most renowned and endless story of our city. One, one hundred, one thousand sheaves for a spire is a symbolic action of love and sharing, an invite to celebrate together our story, our memory and our tomorrow. 

A project promoted by Associazione Amici di Via della Spiga, designed and curated by Beatrice Mosca, realised with the support of Luxos and Mastercard, in order to support the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo, the historic organisation that, for almost seven centuries, has been taking care of the symbol of the city in the world. Spires, in fact, are among the most fragile architectural elements, needing constant care and complex interventions to be preserved.

The adoption of the Spire will be celebrated with a great event, scheduled on the 14th May 2015 at 20.30. One thousand guests for a suggestive Table – with a over 300 meters length – along Via della Spiga under the stars in the heart of the city. A living installation, charming and unexpected that turns the ‘Living room’ in the Fashion Quadrilateral – the place symbolizing the excellence of Milan in the world – in a spectacular banquet under the sky. A Table never realised before with one thousand seats, in an urban set up of lights, green, flowers, fruit cascades and live music, for a dinner with a stellar menu in one of the most beautiful Fashion streets in Milan, ‘dressed-up’ like an enchanted garden. An original evening that highlights ‘Expo in Città’, with the participation of the world of creativity, of glamour and style, together with the representatives of the Institutions and of the Civil Society. For an event beyond any event.
