“Perfect for pictures”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The Fontana di Piazza Castello is the fountain in front of Parco Sempioni, its always busy. A great place to take pictures with the castello in the background. Dont be surprised to see many Chinese there taking wedding pictures

“Unhappy style mix.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

From a purely aesthetical point of wiev the fountain has no relation with the Sforza's Castle. It was originally made in the fascist years and after a 60 years long storage it went under restoration and rebuild (like a puzzle) as an ornamental item just in front of the Filarete's tower.
Possibly a low budget caused the municipality to choose such an
unhappy solution (use of ancient stuff stored since half a century) instead of going for a fully new original architectural project which could be brilliantly matching the castle style.A good enlighting system makes night wievs pretty enjoyable though.
