From the Duomo Shop: the limited edition "Madonnina del Duomo"
The official copy that supports the "Get Your Spire" restoration projects
AN EXCLUSIVE AND UNIQUE REPRODUCTION
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 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 the 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 wooden base and standing 30cm 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.
In the 2018 limited edition version, the Veneranda Fabbrica has chosen to propose 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 onto the sculpture and engraved in gold on the Candoglia marble plaque.
Packed in an elegant oak box with a sliding latch, 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 FOR THE RESTORATION OF THE CATHEDRAL
In addition to its extraordinary value, the "Madonnina del Duomo" represents above all an important contribution to the ongoing restoration projects which the Cathedral has required since the second century after its construction began.
In fact, the purchase of this piece includes a €100 donation to the "Get Your Spire" project and the chance to become a Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo di Milano donor. By contacting the Donations Office, you can register your name or that of your company in the Donors Register and thus inscribe your name in history.
