The book tells the story of the Castle of Milan during the centuries of its existence, with the successive and different works in his defense. It is ideally divided into two parts and responds to how and when it started, how it was and it changed over the centuries and provides framing, details, suggestions and ideas, well-known and little-known, for a visit. The photographs are almost all of the author and offer views of the Castle without the facilities of the Expo 2015: in front of the Castle Square, inside the parade ground etc.: the Castle as it could be in the fifteenth century. It is not a historical treatise; it is not an essay of art, but a story for those who want to discover the facts and the curious episodes of the Castle, with drawings, maps, plans and photographs. The drawings and maps are essential for the ages of which we have no photographic trace, in addition to panoramic shots of 1893-2014. With the help of this you will understand why it was controlled by the Visconti, the Sforza, and then by the French, the Spanish, the Habsburgs, by Napoleon I, and again by the Austrians before becoming Italian. The history of the castle, in fact, is linked to almost all of Europe. The author and photographer, for many years visited the Castle, each time discovering something new.
