The History
Belgioioso originated in the Late Medieval, or the Early Renaissance Period, when Pavia was ruled by the Visconti family. The birth of the town is closely related to the building of the Castle, famous for its beauty. We can read in the memoirs of Giorgio Giulini, the historian of Milan, that Galeazzo Visconti founded the Castle in the second half of the 14th century and used to call it “Gioioso” (joyful), which later became “Belgioioso”.
