Castelli di Cannero

In 1519 Ludovico Borromeo settled on the islets opposite Cannero and Cannobio. Exactly five centuries later the works for the restoration of the Cannero Castles start again.

Three years is the time required to transform them into a museum that will tell the story of the castle through the centuries, thanks to the finds discovered during the archaeological excavation campaigns and with the help of appropriate information technology.
