The persons in this painting were wrongly identified as "Uberto de'Sacrati and his family" by the art historians. This family-portrait of the only daughter of Filippo Maria Sforza was made at Sesto Calende, the family seat of her husband, the Count Giovanni Galeazzo Visconti. On the left side you can see the very important fortress of Arona in the distance which was dismantled by Napoleon in later times.
