The Castle was named after Francesco Sforza, who transformed it into a ducal residence in 1450. But its origins date back to the second half of the 14th century, at the time of Galeazzo II Visconti.
At the castle museum you can see Michelangelo Buonarroti’s unfinsihed, Pietà Rondanini, the last work he was working on before his death. In the lower levels of the castle you can visit the prehistoric and Egyptian museum of works found during building as well as Egyptian works acquired by excavation of Achille Vogliano, Italian archiologist.
