Women in the Archives, a guided tour for Women's Day

8 March, a day to discover an entirely female story in the Veneranda Fabbrica

Margherita, Giulia and Cecilia…These are only some of the thousands of women's names that mark the great story of the Fabbrica, which has been taking care of the symbol of Milan for over half a millennium.

There have been many women who have met the challenge of this construction and have contributed to the building and enhancement of the Cathedral: Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo wishes to honour these women with a new itinerary to discover its very valuable Archives.

On Women's Day, Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo is organising two guided tours entitled Women in the Archives on 7 and 8 March 2014, with entrance free of charge, on a first come first served basis. Booking is required..

The first tour is scheduled on Friday 7 March at 16:00; the second will be held on Saturday 8 March at 10:30, with entrance from Piazza del Duomo 20.

For information and bookings, please contact the Archives by writing to archivio@duomomilano.it.
