Hosted inside the Castello Sforzesco (Sala delle Asse), the Trivulziana Library can be accessed to examine incunabula and ancient documents from the 8th to the 18th century, parchments, records and prints. The Trivulziana library hosts the so-called “Codice Trivulziano”, or Trivulzian Codex, an autographic manuscript by Leonardo da Vinci, containing studies on military and religious architecture and a curious collection of real and imaginary portraits. The Historic Archive preserves all the acts of the Municipality of Milan and of the Duchy dating back as far as 1385.

If you speak Italian, you will enjoy this attraction at its best.
