The Battle of Bosco Marengo was fought in the forests near Marengo on the 18th of October 1447 between a French army of the Duke of Orleans and a Lombard army of the Ambrosian Republic.

The Lombard condottiero Bartolomeo Colleoni led the Ambrosian forces to victory over the French.

Today, a Commemorative plaque, on a wall of the Sforza Castle reminds of this battle.
