The Palio square
Named after the poet Ludovico Ariosto, whose statue stands in the middle of the piazza on a column.
Famous for the Palio of Ferrara hosted yearly every last Sunday in May, Piazza Ariostea is a unique square that is actually oval in shape, named after the poet Ludovico Ariosto, whose statue stands in the middle of the same piazza on a column.
All around, visitors can admire historic buildings including Palazzo Massari, site of the Civic Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.
