Endless Duomo

Milan, Duomo: believers praying and taking pictures during the ostentation of the Holy Nail of the True Cross of Jesus during the Rite of the Nivola. In Duomo’s apse, 40 meters up from the floor, tradition says a nail of the Holy Cross is preserved. During the rite, the Archbishop goes up to the relic in a framework decorated like a cloud (nivola), and take the nail down to the ground level, to have it seen from believers for 40 hours.
