Open Museums at the "Castle Sforzesco"
Piazza Castello
THURSDAY, Sept 6 (8pm - 10pm)

Along Via Dante, now a pedestrian precinct, is the spectacular Piazza Cairoli, with the impressive Castello Sforzesco opposite. Built in 1450 for the Duke Francesco Sforza, it was designed on a rectangular plan with massive corner towers and the fantastic battlements. The main entrance was enhanced by a tower built between 1901 and 1904 to replace the original. The original, attributed to the fifteenth-century architect Filarete, collapsed in 1521. The inner area is divided into three courtyards: the first and largest, used as the Piazza d'Armi, leads on the left to the Renaissance-style Cortile della Rocchetta, and on the right to the Corte Ducale. Conceived as a military stronghold, the Castle later became one of the most prestigious courts of Europe. Renovated in the early years of the twentieth century, it now houses a Pinacoteca, an important Sculpture Museum where Michelangelo's Pietà Rondanini is preserved, the Egyptian Museum, and the Trivulziana Library.
