Early Origins of the Bisconti family
The surname Bisconti was first found in Milan (Italian: Milano, Milanese: Milan), the second-most populous city in Italy and the capital of Lombardy. The two palaces in the Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Reale and the palace of the archbishops are notable. The city is rich in art, museums, galleries and sights. Castello Sforzesco stands in the Parco.
The Hours of Giangaleazzo Visconti is a Roman-liturgy illuminated Book of Hours that was commissioned by the ruler of Milan, Italy, Gian Galeazzo Visconti (1351-1402.) This work that was completed after this death, is one of the richest examples of an illustrated personal prayer book, now on display in the Biblioteca Nazionale in Florence. Reprints are available worldwide.
