This crowdfunding campaign will end on December 22nd, 2014. Our goal is to raise $180,000.00: help us to restore a spire of the Duomo di Milano to its original beauty!
Italy is renowned worldwide for its artistic and cultural heritage. Milan is universally represented by cuisine, fashion, design, and above all by his most cherished symbol: the Duomo di Milano.
This ambitious campaign aims to support the complete restoration of the spires of the Duomo di Milano, which was dedicated to St. Francesca Cabrini. At the beginning of the 20th century, this great Italian woman crossed the United States, consecrating her life to the poor, and thus earning the title of "mother of migrants". Francesca is synonymous with freedom and with what it means to be a citizen of the world.
Thanks to the International Patrons of Duomo di Milano Inc. and a partnership with Eataly, the Duomo di Milano wants to offer all American citizens the extraordinary possibility to take part actively in the restoration of this unique monument, on the occasion of the exhibition of some original architectural components of the cathedral hosted at New York's Eataly flagship store.
Only together can we take charge of the irrevocable commitment to transmit to future generations this invaluable artistic and cultural heritage that belongs not only to Milan and his people, but to the entire world.
This project symbolizes a limitless love of action, a rediscovery of shared values, and the strong, immemorial bond that ties together the United States and Italy.
