Up On The Roof

"On the roof it's peaceful as can be,
and there the world below can't bother me" ~ Carole King --

A view of a portion of the roof of Duomo di Milano, the largest cathedral in Italy. Construction began on the Gothic cathedral in 1386 and took nearly six centuries to complete. It is constructed in marble from the Mergozzo area of northern Italy that deteriorates over time and needs to be replaced every hundred years so there is unending restoration work going on.
