Milan’s Duomo on your suitcase and in your heart

The sight of Milan’s beautiful cathedral, or Duomo as Italians call it, often makes tourists skip a heartbeat today.

So we can only imagine the effect the majestic Gothic architecture had on poor Renzo Tramaglino, one of the leading characters in Alessandro Manzoni’s “The Betrothed”, when he suddenly saw as if rising from a desert, and not in the midst of a city, the noble structure of the cathedral. The surprise was so wonderful, he forgot all his misfortunes in contemplating, even at a distance, this eighth wonder of the world, of which he had heard so much from his infancy.

The memory of the spires, and of the Madonnina on the tallest one, would cling to the heart of any traveller… just as easily as these luggage labels stuck on suitcases.
