VMs: Re: V-shaped battlements

Hi Dana,

Thanks to Rene for previously pointing us to the Malaspina Castle in
Fosdinovo as a possible match for the castle in the VMS.

Il Castello Malaspina di Fosdinovo:

Thanks for the links - but perhaps I'm missing Rene's point as I fail to see any morphological, structural, or functional similarities with the castle in the VMS. :-(

The VMS castle has a square layout, a central tower, swallow-tail merlons, non-swallow-tail city walls extending off to either side, and two external rivellins on adjacent sides of the castle, one either side of the city walls.

Rocca Sforzesca in Imola seems to match all of these - how well does Il Castello Malaspina do?

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
