THE FRENCH DOMINATION

During the French domination in the years that followed the fall of Ludovico il Moro (1499), the Castle survived delicate historical events: battles, occupations, sacking and destruction. In those years, the Filarete tower was used as an ammunition storage area. During a stormy night in 1521 a lightning rod hit the tower and made it explode causing casualties and damage to the whole structure.
