Appeared in the sky of Milan in 1774. Suddenly, like a suprise, the people of Milan are electrocuted by that immage that stans at the horizon, on the Major Spire of the Cathedral. A figure that they would never forget.
Overcoming technical difficulties and perplexities, the Veneranda Fabbrica wanted the statue of Madonnina was placed on the highest point of the Duomo. High 4,16 meters, 964.000 kilograms, 33 slabs and the steel frame of 564,800 kilograms, surrounded by four cherubim, this is our Madunina.
In 2015 the Veneranda Fabbrica of Duomo decided to commission to Fonderia Nolana Del Giudice a copy of Madonnina absolutely faithful to the original, for the Expo 2015, scale 1:1, so as to allow all the faithful and visitors to be able to pull over and contemplate this sign of protection at the International Exhibition.
From the ending of Expo 2015, many people have wondered: where is the copy of Madonnina? Today we have the answer: it is inside the Duomo, his natural home. Exactly as it happened in 1774, the Veneranda Fabbrica wanted to bring at night: “Suddenly it appeared inside the Duomo, visible to the eyes of many these days come into the Cathedral” these are the words of Mons. Gianantonio Borgonovo, president of the Veneranda Fabbrica of Duomo of Milan.
Here, the light that filters through the large stained-glass windows radiates strength and energy, drawing on the surface inlays of infinite beauty. The colors harmonize with this image, creating an atmosphere of deep emotion and interior recollection. To its former glory, faithful and visitors are dazzled.
