Property description

Apartment in a splendid historical palace of the 15° century, recently totally restructured, located in the center of the Town of Ferrara, one of the noblest Italian Cities of the Renaissance. The importance is confirmed by Google Earth as one of the most important pieces of the history of Ferrara (please click on Google Earth....). The apartment is completely new, in the structures and the furnishing, located in the center of the City; it is perfectly silent, totally isolated: over (is the roof) and under (is an ancient porch), and laterally flanked by a centennial garden. Access to the staircase and elevator is practically separate. There is no problem with easy access for the elderly or disabled. From the apartment you can easily access public transportation. Included in the price is the availability of a reserved secure place for a car in a closed court-yard attached to the place of the apartment.

Ferrara is located just between Veneto Region and Emilia-Romagna Region in a baricentric position, from where, by superhighway or railway, many important places can be very easily reached, as well as the Apennines and the seaside.

Ferrara has been an important medieval center and one of the most gorgeous courts of the Renaissance. Its harmonious and inimitable face arises from the plot of shady and irregular roads of its medieval quarters and the luminous and geometrical spaces of the Renaissance age. The town is enriched by splendid palaces, houses, churches, squares, roads, gardens and of works of art preserved in its innumerable museums, which constitute one of its bigger attractions. It is a town to be lived walking, finding out in every corner its character of Capital of the Renaissance and gathering from this glorious past the reasons for its present. It was in the Renaissance that Ferrara reached its maximum brightness below the Dukes of Este, whose exponents erected important historical monuments (the Castle, Diamond’s Palace- that lodges international reputation painting Exhibitions- Schifanoia Palace etc …).

Ferrara has one of the most ancient Italian universities (in 1503 Nicolò Copernicus received there the University degree) and it was an important economic center, where numerous Hebrew communities were called, leaving very interesting historical testimonies. The town is also connected by a cycle track to the Po river, the most important of Italy, characteristic for his delta, which offers marvelous naturalistic views. Also in the evening the town can offer pleasant moments. The dishes typical of the kitchen of Ferrara in the restaurants and inns placed in the narrow streets of medieval epoch can be tasted; near the splendid romantic-Gothic Cathedral several wine cellars are found, among which the more ancient of the world, “at Brindisi” (frequented in 1435 by famous personalities as Cellini, Titian Vecellio, Ludovico Ariosto and Torquato Tasso).

The Municipal Theater in front of Estense Castle, rich of high-level events both for the prose and dance and the music, while, the loving of the jazz, can taste a good glass of wine in the Tower of the walls, seat of a famous Jazz-Club. Ferrara is also place of a Road Musical Festival, which in September recalls tourists from all Europe, and which animates the roads of the town both in the day and at night. Outside of the town are also the numerous summer residences of the Estenses and museums which remember the ancient origins of this zone of Italy, where in old times lived the Etruscans. Finds of the greco-etruscan town of Spina, whose importance, as commercial emporium and point of meeting of the Greek and Etruscan civilizations, is testified by the presence of many objects of several origin, some of very skilled manufacture. Finds include a time span from the last decades of the VI Century B.C. up to the half of III Century A.C.

Magnificent historical places and tourist resorts are in the direct neighborhood of Ferrara, as the Abbey of Pomposa.:masterpiece of the Roman and Byzantine art, the Abbey announces himself in distance with his polling bell tower, lighthouse in the green sea which surrounds it. The church was founded in the VI century and from the half of the IX century it began to operate the first Benedictine monastic community, which reached his maximum brightness after the year a Thousand, when the Abbot's spiritual and political jurisdiction extended himself on all the surrounding resorts. True and real culture lighthouse, Pomposa had one of the richest libraries of its time. To be remembered, among the Personalities which made her illustrious, the Saint Guido of Strambiati and the Monk Guido from Pomposa (erroneously named Guido from Arezzo), inventor of the modern musical transcription.

Huge naturalistic interest has all the Delta of the Po River, at few kilometers from Ferrara, where bicycle or boat excursions can very easily be arranged. During the Summer it is always easily possible to reach well known bathing resorts on the Adriatic Sea (Porto Garibaldi, Lido delle Nazioni, Lido di Spina, Lido degli Scacchi....) or to go on excursion on the near Tosco-Emilian Appennines (near Bologna) , or the Euganei Hills (near Padua).
