BeschreibungPlease note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Ospedale Maggiore, traditionally named Ca' Granda (i.e. Big House), is a building in the center of Milan, northern Italy, constructed to house one of the first community hospitals, the largest such undertaking of the fifteenth century. Commissioned by Francesco Sforza in 1456 and designed by Antonio Filarete it is among the first examples of Renaissance architecture in Lombardy. Even if the old buildings of the Ospedale Maggiore host today the State University of Milan, you can still find in it apart from the beautiful original architecture - some of the relics of its glorious medical and sanitary history.
