It was built by Lorenzo de’ Medici between 1487 and 1492, on top of the ruins of previous fortifications. Thanks to a number of restoration initiatives, the fortress is capable of welcoming visitors once again. It is now a cultural hub that hosts numerous prominent activities, including national events.
