Historical records show that the castle was erected in the late fourteenth century by Gian Galeazzo Visconti, who received the Dukes of Burgundy and Touraine; following the looting of Lomello by Facino Dog also the castle suffered severe damage, even if it did not go completely destroyed. In 1449 Francesco Sforza, duke of Milan, gave a fief, Lomello and Dorno, Count Antonio Crivelli who began the reconstruction of the castle, surrounding it with a moat and raising a tower guarding the drawbridge, the work was completed by His successors who even did get marble and columns from Stradella, the latter most likely are those of the porch of the courtyard … In the animated book I included a series of photographs taken during my brief visit and you can also have an idea of ​​the frescoes that adorn the ceiling of the two main rooms and admire the mosaics of Roman origin found a few dozen meters from the castle.
