With the installation of the scaffolding structures in the area below the large sixteenth-century boxes, inside the presbytery, work has begun on the restoration of the Milan Duomo organ. The Veneranda Fabbrica will work on the instrument (the largest in Italy and one of the first in the world) for three years in order to restore it to its full splendour. The project will involve both the mechanical parts of the instrument and the wooden and ornamental parts, including the large doors painted with scenes from the First and New Testaments, made between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by artists such as Giuseppe Meda and Camillo Procaccini.
To support its restoration, the fundraising campaign "15,800 notes for the Duomo" was launched. One of the first donors was the Archbishop of Milan, who sent in his own contribution.
Contributing is simple: with a donation starting at 50 euros you can receive invitations for concerts and events at the Cathedral.
