The Cathedral

Piazza della Cattedrale | Ferrara

The Cathedral of Ferrara reopens to the public more than three years after its closure, with the multimedia exhibition that illustrates the restoration and recovery of the eight pillars of the building.

The exhibition, which occupies the entire central nave and develops tangentially to the area of the yard itself, illustrates through the help of photographic panels, interactive totems and videos, the restoration and recovery of the eight pillars of the building that, in the course of the works carried out by the company "Leonardo", have brought to light extraordinary figures of a Middle Ages that was believed inexorably lost.

It was possible to create a path of knowledge suitable for everyone, Ferrara and tourists, so as to bring people closer and closer to the Cathedral and the immense work of recovery that is being done on it to safeguard it from the damage of time, earthquakes and weather conditions.

The only altar accessible to the public is the altar of the Madonna delle Grazie, while all the rest of the cathedral remains construction site. The impossibility of the celebration of the masses that will continue to take place in the Basilica of Saint Francis remains.

The Cathedral, one of the icon monuments of the city, has on its outside and inside time marks of all the eras that marked the city of art.

A lovely summary of different styles, from the façade both in romanic, in the lower part, and gothic style, in the upper part, to the various inside areas, now in classic style. Among the most significant artworks  Guercino's "Saint Lawrence's Martyrdom" and Bastianino's "Universal Judgement".

The Cathedral, dedicated to Saint George and the Virgin Mary, master Nicholaus' work, had its apsis' project by Biagio Rossetti, while the majestic bell tower, Leon Battista Alberti's project, unfortunately is unfinished.
