The Restoration Diary

An ongoing appointment at duomomilano.it, with images and updates of the Cathedral's restoration

Under everyone's watchful gaze, the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo di Milano has, for almost seven centuries, worked daily so that the international symbol of this city may shine in all its infinite beauty, thus assuming a great responsibility.

Active since 1387, the great restorers of the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo guard and pass down from generation to generation an age-old knowledge that remains in constant dialogue with the most avant-garde technologies of each era. 

In recent years the work has been non-stop and is now being retraced through the photographic updates of the Restoration Diary, a true picture book of images that for the first time makes it possible to follow, on a weekly basis, all of the new developments and all of the renovation and enhancement projects underway on both the inside and the outside of Milan's Duomo.
