Villa Borromeo – Cassano d’Adda – Milan
Olympus SP700

The most important landmark in Cassano is the Borromeo Castle, built around 1000 and progressively expanded. In 1400, Francesco I Sforza asked architect Bartolomeo Gadio (who also worked on the Duomo di Milano, the Castello Sforzesco and the Soncino castle) to redesign it extensively. Afterwards, it became the possession of Venetians, Spanish, Austrians, and of the Italian noble families Dadda, Castaldo, Bonelli and Borromeo.
The neoclassic Villa Borromeo is the other excellent sight in this town, surrounded by a green park, and designed by Giuseppe Piermarini (the designer of the Teatro alla Scala, of Milan’s Palazzo Reale and of Monza’s Villa Reale). Also of interest the medieval ‘ricetto’ (barracks), villa Brambilla, villa Gabbioneta, villa Cornaggia-Medici, villa Mauri, casa Pasini, casa Rusca, casa Corsini, palazzo Berva, a square church tower of the 14th century (built by Beatrice della Scala, wife of Barnabò Visconti), and the Immacolata, S. Aquilino, S. Dionigi, S. Antonio and S. Ambrogio churches.
