CiaoMilano .:. Milano .:. Castello Sforzesco
 
The Sforza Castle is a spectacular fortified palace built by the Viscontis and the Sforzas, Signori of Milan, who held sway over Northern Italy between the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

The Castle was extensively renovated around 1900 to house museums and libraries. Particularly outstanding are the art gallery, or Pinacoteca, reopened after restoration works in April 2005, which boasts paintings by Mantegna, Cesare da Sesto, Canaletto, Bellotto, and the Museo d'Arte Antica, containing sculptures from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance.

The Castle's exhibits include the Rondanini Pietà, last and perhaps most moving masterpiece by Michelangelo.

Elsewhere in the Castle are other collections of old instruments, tapestries, furniture and costumes from bygone centuries, every piece outstanding. See if there are exhibitions on.
