Mediolanum Vulgo Milano is an attractive seventeenth-century plan of Milan, first published by Joan Blaeu in 1663 and reissued by Pierre Mortier in 1704. This highly detailed map contains a key to 256 important locations in the city, with il Duomo in the center, and il Castello (Castello Sforzesco), surrounded by star-shaped fortified walls and a moat. The upper corners are adorned with coats of arms — the Habsburg arms of the King of Spain on the left, and on the right — the Biscione, the family arms of the House of Visconti, as the heraldic symbol of Milan.
