Struggling to find the ultimate holiday gift for the person who has everything? The minds behind Milan’s gothic cathedral aka the Duomo aka the second tallest cathedral in the world aka the world’s fourth largest have a most original idea for you: adopt a gargoyle. The new campaign — technically “adopt a spire” though the 135 steeples with the lil’ buggers on them are expected to go first — hopes to raise €25 million ($32 million) for the facade’s upkeep so owning a spire and getting your name engraved on one will cost you €100,000 ($130,000). You can donate less, of course, minus your name in marble. So far most of the mula has come from Italians followed by the French. As of press time, only four Canucks had donated.
