A bit of history:

The fortress
It consists of five different but harmonious buildings erected from the year 1000 until the 18th century: the Scaligera Wing, the Visconti Wing, the Tower of Giovanni Visconti, the Borromeo Wing.
Of particular interest is the Hall of Justice with its cycle of frescoes illustrating details of the life of Archbishop Ottone Visconti and his victory over the Torriani in 1227.

The Museum of Dolls and Toys
Founded by the Princess Bona Borromeo Arese, it shows some of the most beautiful toys in Europe and over 1000 finely dressed dolls.
The materials used, from wax to plastic, show the evolution of this extraordinary toy over time.
