The Madonnina is a statue of Giuseppe Perego in golden copper, depicting the Assumption of the Virgin and placed on the main spire of the Milan Cathedral. Since its creation in 1774, it has become the symbol of the city. Phrases like “in the shadow of the Madonna” indicate the city of Milan as a city of excellence. Tradition says that no building in town may be taller than the Madonna; a previously unpublished law, then officially issued in the 1930’s.
