  • Don't miss the visit to the library, because apart from being able to see the free funeral monument dedicated to Ludovico Ariosto and located within the beautiful palazzo Paradiso.

  • Paradise Palace was originally a Palace of delight, owned degli Estensi, who frescoed with scenes of courtly life, of which there are still fragments (Falconer). In the second half of the 16th century it became the seat of the local University and two centuries later also of public library, which houses ancient and important manuscripts, incunabula and manuscripts. Houses the tomb of Ludovico Ariosto. At the behest of the heirs, there is preserved the heart of the poet Vincenzo Monti.

  • The Palace in the 14th century had a face quite different from the present and was built to be used as a "delizia estense" some sort of place of pleasure where the lordship of Ferrara was fun compared to official court formalities. He later became a University where he graduated Paracelsus, in the 18th century it became the seat of the civic library, after which assumed a character similar to today with the construction of the clock tower, which in a sense, and the marble portal. In 1801 was moved inside the tomb of Ariosto. The Ariostea library today is the most important and big in Ferrara and bequeaths his story to personalities such as Giorgio Bassani and Marco Antonio Guarini.
