  • I invite all to go, a wonderful exhibition well organized and with unique pieces. Develops throughout the ground floor and is therefore properly can also be visited from us that we have a stroller. Recommend the audio guides, maps, to better appreciate the history of Orlando innamorato and then furious and the historical context in which Ariosto writes. The staff was always very friendly with us, from the ticket office at the entrance until security staff in the halls. A 5-minute walk from the palazzo Estense is certainly one of the things to do in Ferrara. Upstairs the permanent exhibition with portraits and much more. Your tickets are separate. Recommend buying on line Museum card. Doing two requests you have already saved a little.

  • One of the most beautiful Exhibitions I have seen at the palazzo dei Diamanti. Full of interesting objects and documents, from the first editions of the Orlando Furioso ending to the testimonies of court life at the time, as well as paintings, prints and other art objects or of common use that recall the poem by Ludovico Ariosto. Preparation well laid out, and audio guides.
