One of the most ancient hospitals in Italy, it was built in the second half of the fifteenth century by Francesco Sforza, duke of Milan, who desired to provide the city with one of the most innovative hospitals, that’s why he charged to Antonio Averluino, called il Filarete, to build this extraordinary building.
