In the place where the Duomo stands once stood the ancient cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore - the Winter Cathedral of Milano, and the Basilica of Santa Tecla - the Summer cathedral. After the collapse of the tower, Archbishop Antonio de 'Saluzzi supported by the population, promoted the reconstruction of a new and larger cathedral (12 May 1386), which arose on the site of the oldest religious heart of the city.
