Children's games in Milan’s Sforza castle

9-20 Aug. Lords and ladies playing mediaeval games.

The Sforzinda series of free children’s activities continues in Milan’s Sforza castle with two afternoons of mediaeval games – some of them created on the spot by the kids themselves.

Lords and ladies will compete in tournaments and learn to play like children did when the castle was built six centuries ago.

The series of activity weekends will continue through the summer until the end of September, each weekend with a different theme. Themes include learning about the family shields displayed in the castle and how to create one for their own family; music and dancing for beginners; planning an ideal city; and creating inventions inspired by Leonardo.

Two slots are available each Saturday and Sunday for 6 to 13-year-olds: 14.00 to 16.00 and 16.00 to 18.00.  Children will be able to interact with their parents or adult accompaniers during the games.

The full Sforzinda programme is available on the Eventbrite website. A link on that page lets you choose a date and a slot, and then register your participants (registration is obligatory, but free).
