  • Building from the iconic name, place not far from the Centre of Ferrara. Often there are exhibitions (recently to Courbet) but even if there are none, I advise you to enjoy the beautiful and original "pattern" of this Palace.

  • No need to inquire what it is exhibited at the Palazzo dei Diamanti, also happening randomly and without any information are always exhibitions of the highest level, with a general artistic care that distinguishes Diamonds from many similar sites but with less nobility and accuracy. When I entered many years ago I was "shocked" by the collection of the first printed newspapers ... creepy!! And every time there are always new things to see and learn!

  • Visit dedicated to the exhibition of the French realist. Nice layout, several paintings (also a Corot) well explained in the free audio guide. Shame about the protective glass covering almost all paintings (although the lighting perfect confines itself to the minimum glare). Ticket 13 euros (11 low with many possibilities of accessing it, even Ikea card)
