If you visit the Castello Sforzesco, bear in mind that it has been heavily 
restored (it has dove tail embattlements, perhaps it had them originally but 
I think that the current ones are part of the modern (1900's) restoration). 

Inside, there is a collection of large tapestries with the signs of the 
zodiac. The Pisces one has the two fishes connected by a line as in the vms, 
but this is perhaps the standard depiction of the sign at the time.
