  • In the heart of this lovely town, fortress dominating construction, certainly deserves attention. She is beautiful from all sides. Pretty massive entrance tower with a cosy patio where there is a restaurant and various events are held here, on the left, continue the excavations and ruins of ancient buildings at the back of the beautiful façade was already a later construction, the fortress was erected several centuries, attach all new premises!

  • Suggestive fortress at the center of the country, well preserved, with a lovely inner courtyard and rises, though remains, but the austere and elegant.

Inside is the main staircase designed by G.B. Aleotti. Presently is home to exhibitions and conventions.

  • Imposing symbol of the city that with its mass dominates Scandiano. Exhibits, shows and a bar. Unfortunately not always open, but worth a visit if only from the outside. Soon to be restored and usable indoor gardens.
