Milan's Duomo cathedral is putting its gargoyles up for adoption in an attempt to raise money for renovations, the ABC reports.
The cathedral is raising money for essential maintenance amid cuts to Italy's culture budget.
Donors looking for a new idea for their charity dollars can now adopt one of the cathedral's 135 gargoyles.
For $123,000 donors will have their name engraved under their very own gothic gargoyle.
The Cathedral's management says it wants "to encourage the Milanese and citizens of the world to be protagonists in the history of the cathedral".
