##### A Logic Puzzle
Music in the Duomo is a fun and interesting logic puzzle, set in the “Duomo” of Milan, the second biggest cathedral in Italy. Eight animal musicians are planning a concert in the Duomo; they are talented but picky when it comes to choosing their position in the Duomo. Your task is to place all animals in the eight windows and doorways of the Duomo respecting the demands of each musician.
