The sarcophagus of Max I is a Renaissance masterpiece. It is completely surrounded by a fantastic railing in beaten iron decorated with gold leaves and coats of arms. To the angles of the sarcophagus there are four bronze statues of the virtues. To the center there is the bronze statue of Max I knelt in prayer.
The sides of the sarcophagus are covered by 24 bas-reliefs in alabaster with scenes of the life of Max I (among which the marriage between Max and Bianca Sforza and entrance of the sovereign in Milan) drawn by Florian Abel.
