AUF = AD USUM FABRICAE. The typical idiomatic expression “a uf”, that basicly means “for free”, roots in the story of the construction of Milan Cathedral and of the other Europea cathedrals. As a matter of fact, the boats carrying the marble pieces along the Ticino river to the building site beared a large sign on the keal “AUF – Ad Usum Fabricae”. In this way they could navigate “ad ufo”, without paying any duty. #ArtMobile
