  Notes of art in Lombardy

The construction of Villa Mina della Scala, located north of the town at the edge of the open countryside, was built in 1596 as a summer residence by the noble family Cremonese Schizzi and rebuilt between 1657 and 1735 by descendants of that family. Considered one of the most unique noble residences of the Po Valley, it is characterized by the presence of two tall towers with watchtowers that stand at the corners of the residential building, which together with other smaller towers, give the complex the characteristics of a residence castellata. The articulated but compact exterior of the villa harmonizes with the interiors distributed in large rooms finely decorated with mythological tales and moral allegories.
