In December 2020, the ‘Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo di Milano’ cataloguing project kicks off in Manus Online. The project relates to the Library manuscripts collection, together with the musical manuscripts preserved in the related section of the adjoining Archive.
The Veneranda Fabbrica is the historic institution responsible for the Milan Duomo conservation and enhancement. Established in 1387, it has been working for over 630 years for the protection and promotion ofe the Cathedral. The Archive and the Library preserve the documentary and book heritage produced and collected by the institution during its centuries-old history, carrying out its duty.
The cataloguing project of its whole manuscript book heritage, both medieval and modern, represents an opportunity of extraordinary importance to deepen the knowledge of such a precious patrimony and thus for its sharing and enhancement.
The project is coordinated by Soprintendenza Archivistica e Bibliografica della Lombardia, with the scientific support of the University eCampus.
