The Sforzesco Castle is a very important cultural reference point for the city. Among the museums it houses, there is the Pinacoteca
, with works - among the many - by Mantegna, Antonello da Messina, Correggio and Canaletto. Inside the Castle, as well as the Pinacoteca you'll also find the Prehistory Museum, the Museum of Ancient Art, the Furniture and Wooden Sculpture Museum and the Pietà Rondanini Museum
, centred around Michelangelo Buonarroti's final sculpture.
Among the works by Leonardo da Vinci, Sforzesco Castle also contains the stunning trompe l'oeil
pergola with overhanging vines painted on the ceiling of the Sala delle Asse
, and the Codex Trivulzianus kept in the Castle's Trivulziana Library.
