Museo Civico e Archeologico Review

The city's Municipal and Archaeological Museum's collection is notable for its Roman relics, including a major glass collection, and Romanesque sculpture. It's housed in a heavily rebuilt version of what was once Castello Visconteo, erected in 1300 as a stronghold of the dukes of Milan. Soon after, it was virtually destroyed by the invading Swiss Confederates.
