Museums included in the initiative

In the centre and symbol of the city of Ferrara, it was built as a defensive fortification in the Middle Ages and was later enriched with the typical features of a Renaissance court residence; the splendid interior frescoes and the terrace with the so-called Orange Garden bear witness to this.

It exhibits animal specimens in the Zoology and Entomology sections, as well as fossils and minerals in the Palaeontology, Geology and Mineralogy sections. Among the most significant are the cast of Plesiosaurus and the skull of the Tyrannosaurus.

Located in the former Church of St. Romano, it contains works of various kinds (tapestries, sculptures, reliquaries, etc.) that were originally displayed inside the cathedral.

It has the typical features of 16th century stately homes and is distinguished by the harmonious elegance of the outdoor spaces surrounding it.

Situated in the inner garden of Palazzo Massari, in a building that in ancient times was used as a coach depot, it periodically hosts exhibitions of national and international contemporary artists.

It provides evidence of the different periods of Ferrara's history between the 19th and 20th centuries through various sources: weapons, relics, paper documents, photographs, prints.

It was the home where the great poet Ludovico Ariosto spent the last years of his life while writing the third edition of Orlando Furioso. It is now home to a museum dedicated to him.

A residence dating back to the 15th century, whose interiors were later embellished with Baroque and Neoclassical decorations, it is set in a green area of the city and houses the Civic Museums of Ancient Art.
