The Castello Sforzesco Visconteo di Novara Foundation
After a long period of closure to the public, in 2006 the redevelopment process of the Castle began, first of all with the establishment of the Castello Visconteo Sforzesco di Novara Foundation. The restoration, completed in 2016, allowed the Castle to come back to life: the historic walls are now combined with modern elements, giving the rooms a particular charm.
Every year, the staff of the Castello Foundation carries out an effective selection and programming activity of the artistic and cultural proposal, which is always of a high quality level, increasingly rich and diversified in order to satisfy multiple types of public, with different interests.
Inside the rooms, it is possible to organize events, conferences, dinners and art exhibitions, adapting the spaces to the different needs and having the ultimate goal of enhancing the structure as a cultural heritage of the territory, making the Castle the most important cultural center of the city.
It is possible to distinguish some events that can be defined as "peak" which, thanks to the high quality level of the artistic proposal and the excellent communication and promotion campaign implemented, have considerably increased the visibility of the Castle, both in terms of visits and in terms of of views on social networks and web searches. In addition to the exhibitions, numerous events are organized, capable of attracting different targets: from families with children to young people interested in music. There are also many food and wine events, organized in the courtyard, which always pay particular attention to the promotion of products from the Novara area.
