The Palazzo dei Diamanti is a palace turned exhibition space that is famous for its Renaissance style of architecture. Designed by Biagio Rossetti upon commission by Sigismondo d'Este, brother of Duke Ercole I d'Este in 1492, this art gallery is owned by the Municipality of Ferrara.

The major highlights of the Palazzo dei Diamanti are:

  • The unique diamond shape of more than 8,500 white marble blocks which make up the ashlar of the building, hence giving its name. These diamonds are positioned to maximize the sunlight reflected off the building that creates a mesmerizing visual effect.
  • The first floor which houses the National Art Gallery of Ferrara and has paintings of the Ferrara school from the 13th up to the 18th century.
  • The exhibition space on the ground floor which are conducted by Ferrara Arte and the Galleries of Modern Art and Contemporary Art of Ferrara.
  • Bilingual commentaries describing the beautiful paintings.
  • Great lighting system highlighting the stunning paintings that have also been well-placed.

The Palazzo dei Diamanti is a haven for art lovers who’ll love the numerous international exhibitions which are held here and aimed at preserving the tradition of the art history of the city.
