Castle of Gropparello - Piacenza - Italy_part5

Central Courtyard
The central courtyard is one of the most interesting and beautiful building, from here you can understand the logic of the ancient medieval fortress defense, dominated by the imposing bulk of the central tower, built on a rock mass that is elevated about ten feet from the floor of the courtyard.

Far from traditional courtyard regular geometric design of Bramante, with various orders of arcades (which requires, among other things, a flat terrain and regular), an irregular shape roughly triangular, which is basically the shape of the cliff, just to meet their needs construction.
