Endless Duomo

Milan, Duomo: the Archbishop of Milan Angelo Scola during the Mass before 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 with paper mache like a cloud (nivola), and take the nail down to the ground level to have it seen from believers for 40 hours.
