Microlensing variability in the gravitationally lensed quasar QSO 2237+0305 equivalent to the Einstein Cross - I. Spectrophotometric monitoring with the VLT

We present the results of the first long-term (2.2 years) spectroscopic monitoring of a gravitationally lensed quasar, namely the Einstein Cross QSO 2237+0305. The goal of this paper is to present the observational facts to be compared in follow-up papers with theoretical models to constrain the inner structure of the source quasar.
