MCDXCII ⬪ 1492 AD
QUIET BEFORE THE STORY
Things are about to change. Firearms are making bows and arrows obsolete. Milan is falling into the hands of the French. A new continent is about to be discovered.
Leonardo da Vinci has been a guest at the Sforza court for almost ten years, dedicated to inventing defense systems and developing his art. But even this equilibrium is about to be broken, as enemy troops prepare their entry into the Sforzesco Castle.

THE CASTLE NEEDS YOU
A portal to the past has been found. But only a few can cross it, and for a specific mission: to defend the castle from the enemy’s invasion. Turn yourself into an archer in the XV century and discover the secrets of the Falconiera, the most ancient of the Castle’s towers. How long can you protect the battlements for? Every minute matters. It’s time to make History.
What is it?
Live the past of the Sforza Castle thanks to the technology of the future. ‘Beyond the Castle’ offers a tour of the Milanese fortress and an immersive virtual reality experience. Put on your archer clothes and defend the Castle with a bow, arrows and bomb, the ancestor of the modern rifle. Discover the secrets of the Castle in the time of Leonardo da Vinci and Renaissance Milan. The tour of the Castello Sforzesco and the experience have a total duration of about 40 minutes.
Who is it for?
The experience is suitable for adults and children from 10 years of age (you cannot access the battlemens if you are younger). Not recommended for those suffering from heart problems or motor difficulties. Visitors will participate in groups of up to 6 people.
