The Addizione Erculea, translated to be the Herculean Effort, was an urban work planning that took place during the Renaissance period in the 15th century. Commissioned upon the orders of Ercole I d’Este in 1492, this project was completed by architect Biagio Rossetti and was named in honor of the Ercole.

The work entailed a doubling of the city towards the north and created a new area that centered around two major perpendicular axis, namely, Corso Ercole I, and Corso Porta Po. This extended portion of the city consists of many parks, gardens and monuments, the most famous of which is the Palazzo Diamante. Because of its unique and rational city plan, Ferrara has been titled as the first ‘Modern European City’ and has also been declared as an UNESCO World Heritage site since 1995.

Along with the famous monuments, the Addizione Erculea also has an area of 4 hectares enclosed within the Chartreuse and the Jewish cemetery that is wholly devoted to agriculture. The L 'Association New Terraviva is responsible for the care of this area and organizes several recreational and educational activities for children and adults alike which you can explore and enjoy on your visit to this place.
