Narrating Ferrara | Summer Edition wants to guide the visitor through green areas of Renaissance's Ferrara.
Through the wide roads wanted by Estense's family and designe by Biagio Rossetti court's architect by the end of XV century, full of churches and palaces rich in art and history, that prove ancient splendor of a city called "people-oriented", such that walking through it it's the best way to enjoy the city.
We'll walk on the wide Corso Ercole I d'Este which kept throughout centuries its residential arterial road characteristic, rich in magnificent dwellings, some of which were owned by Estensi, city's Lords, such as Palazzo dei Diamanti characterized by a covering of 8500 marble bulges. Near it you can enjoy Palazzo Prosperi Sacrati and Parco Massari, city's big green lung, used in 1970 by Vittoria De Sica as set for its "Il giardino dei Finzi-Contini".
Not so fare there is the green San Cristoforo alla Certosa complex, wanted by Borso d'Este, first duke of the city, and since there we'll arrive in Piazza Ariostea, wide city "salon" recently restructured.
It will be an itinerary through the beauty which is born thanks to the pleasant and varied presence of monuments and glimpses that make this city never boring or predictable.
