The Biscione in Novara

After Milan the "Biscione" (i.e. big snake), the heraldic symbol of the Visconti house, has reached Novara, too.

This coat of arms is at the entrance of the Castle (posted on 04.06.2007).

Great photo and seems very historical house.

By the way, the movie director, Luchino Visconti, is from the house??

I saw one of his movie, il gattopardo, some years ago, and his aesthetic looked very aristocratic.
