“The Pillars of the Earth” and “La catedral del Mar”.
1404 – The view from up there is of an expanse of red roof tiles, a blue sky interrupted by church steeples topped by belfries, and a mountain range dusted with snowy peaks. It’s an amazing sight, and it’s all in a day’s work. Because up on the scaffolding, Pietro and Alberto are lifting the statue of the Count of Virtue, Giangaleazzo Visconti onto the tallest spire. The task is difficult, and a sign that the Church has reached great heights. It’s the symbol of Milan, Il Duomo, and master craftsmen and engineers are building it.

CRISTINA S. FANTINI
Milanese by adoption, she has always dedicated herself with passion to historical research and writing. After making her debut with the successful series set in ancient Rome by Adele Vieri Castellano, with Nel nome della pietra she pays her tribute to Milan, an industrious, contradictory city with a secret soul, which reveals places and atmospheres often unknown to his same inhabitants. In these atmospheres she descended to write the history of the symbol that best represents the city of Mila, the Duomo.
