There were streetcar tracks and beyond them was the cathedral. It was white and wet in the mist [...] when we came close to the front of the Cathedral it was very big; [...] It was fine in the mist.
Our Duomo […] is the home of Milan, it is entirely made of marble, it is grand, it is beautiful, it is the only one this grand, this beautiful in the whole entire world.
