Castello Sforzesco

Castello Sforzesco


Milan, Italy (IT)
This castle was constructed by Francesco Sforza as his residence and fortress in 1450. Much loved by the Sforza family, especially Galeazzo Maria Sforza and Ludovico il Moro who added many decorative features to the castle. After its abandon, the castle nearly became victim to an urbanization scheme calling for its demolition - luckily the plan was defeated and the castle restored by Luigi Beltrami, at the turn of this century. The castle houses many museums and collections.
