  • The Tower of Ansperto - archbishop of Milan from 868 to 881 - is actually one of two towers erected by Emperor Maximilian. In the lower Middle Ages they became part of the Church of St. Maurice at the Major Monastery. So a tower of the Roman wall still exists. At 16.60 meters high, it rests on circular foundations in mortar conglomerate, pebbles and brick fragments. Recently restored you can also visit inside because it is part of the archaeological museum.

  • The tower known as Torre di Ansperto is located in the garden of the Civic Archaeological Museum next to the most consistent stretch of the walls of the maximianea era. It was part of the defensive walls built by the emperor Maximian to expand defenses already existing in Milan. At the time the defensive masonry system had to be equipped with many of these towers, all roughly the same shape. This is the only one left standing still entirely.
