Having concluded celebrations of the Veneranda Fabbrica's 630th anniversary since the signing of its first regulation, the Duomo Shop presents the new official reproduction of the "Madonnina del Duomo".
An extraordinarily beautiful collector's piece that, this year, features an even more elegant and resplendent gold plating and is embellished with a plaque made from real pink Candoglia marble, the same soft marble that, since 1387, the Veneranda Fabbrica has extracted day after day from the Candoglia quarry located at the mouth of Val D'Ossola, near the Toce River, for exclusive use in the construction and preservation of the Duomo di Milano.
This official reproduction of the "Madonnina del Duomo" is manufactured in Italy, exclusively for the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo di Milano by the Nolana Del Giudice Foundry, based on a model created for the recent restoration of the Madonnina, the loving protector of Milan since 1774.
This precious copy in gilded bronze, mounted on a solid wood base and standing 30 cm high, is crafted by hand according to the ancient technique of lost wax casting, which guarantees absolute fidelity to every detail of the original model. A NEW LIMITED EDITION
The Veneranda Fabbrica has chosen to create a singularly precious limited edition product (just 30 copies of great artistic value) specifically for enthusiasts and collectors. Attesting to the uniqueness of each piece is the limited edition number stamped directly on the sculpture and engraved in gold on the Candoglia marble plaque.
Packed in an elegant oak box with sliding closure, the case is personalised with the limited edition number and the official logo of the Veneranda Fabbrica.
IN SUPPORT OF THE "GET YOUR SPIRE" PROJECT
In addition to its extraordinary value, the "Madonnina del Duomo" represents above all an important contribution to the ongoing restorations which the Cathedral has required since the second century after its construction was begun.
