Rebel Echoes

Feel the heartbeat of history

Just under three years. That's how much time it took to restore the castle to perfection and put the legacy of Marquise Arconati Visconti back in its rightful place. During that time, the castle's visitors were replaced by conservators specialising in a whole host of disciplines who, with angelic patience, have made all of its rooms and corridors shine again.

After a thriving summer in which we were able to share all this beauty, the castle folds back into hibernation for a little while. We look forward to seeing you again from 31 March 2024. It will be a festive year in which the castle exists exactly 100 years as a museum. We will celebrate this with the return of the castle collection in a brand new scenography.  We are also inviting several contemporary artists to draw on the castle, its collection and its many stories for inspiration, in a bid to show us and the world around us in a new light.

The Museum Garden is also dozing off. The park remains open and always welcomes you for a wander of relaxation.
