Crossing the ancient streets of San Romano and Delle Volte we will reach the suggestive Jewish ghetto with its synagogue, which is still now the landmark of the Jewish community of Ferrara.

A calm and relaxing walk in the city center, very good preserved, recognised World Human Heritage UNESCO, where the tale will move from the Estense family to the Court's plots and suggestions from the life and the work, through different centuries, of Ludovico Ariosto and Giorgio Bassani.

We'll walk on the ample Corso Ercole I d'Este that preserved through the centuries its residential artieral road characteristic, rich of magnificent dwellings, some of which were once Estensi propoerty, such as Palazzo dei Diamanti characterized by 8500 marble bulges covering. Next to it, you could see Palazzo Prosperi Sacrati and Parco Massari, city's huge green lung, used in 1970 by Vittorio De Sica as "Il giardino dei Finzi Contini" location.
