New lighting heightens beauty of Milan's Duomo

Catholic World News - December 10, 2010

Church officials in Milan have installed new lights in the city’s famous cathedral, the Duomo, so that the stained-glass windows are illumined from within, providing a spectacular view from the piazza in front of the cathedral.

The new lights inside the Duomo were lit on December 8 to celebrate the feast of the Immaculate Conception. The windows will be illuminated throughout the Christmas season, and then on weekends and religious feast days.

    The Duomo had great visual appeal the way it was built. Do the lights help or is it an effort to be so called modern? Guy F.
