In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn when being indoor - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Not only shops are at work, and bars and restaurants may serve, but also museums, theaters and cinemas operate again. Starting from Friday, August 6, however, entrance to many indoor venues is allowed only to people who can provide one of the COVID-19 green certifications, in paper or digital format, issued in order to certify they got an anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, healed from COVID-19, or passed a fast or molecular antigen test with negative result for the SARS-CoV-2 virus performed within the last 48 hours. Curfew suspended.

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.
