Renaissance City: art and culture in a beautiful natural setting


Ferrara is a city full of history, since the first settlements during the VII century, it reaches its biggest majesty with Este authority, which makes it one of the cultural capital of Renaissance.

You can still feel a magic atmosphere in the narrow medieval ways and in the larger boulevards of the XV century, which are overlooked by gorgeous palaces which guard indoor gardens in full bloom.

Deep interest is raised by the historical Estensi’s residences, the art’s museums and the temporary exhibits which stretch over the international artistic panorama, collecting famous artists’ works which marked the history of modern and contemporary art, from the romantics to the impressionists, from the abstractionists to the informals.
