The Palazzo di Lodovico Il Moro is also known as the Palazzo Costabili, after Antonio Costabili, an important nobleman in the court of duke Ercole I d'Este. Costabili had commissioned the palace to the famous architect Biagio Rossetti in 1495. Although the palace was not fully built, the architectural brilliance of Rossetti can still be seen in it and it currently houses the National Archaeological Museum of Ferrara.

The major highlights of the palace are as follows:

  • The Courtyard of Honor which has ornamental sculptures carved on it in white stone and is decorated with a magnificent colonnade. It is however, only completed on two sides.
  • The Treasure Hall that has a brilliantly painted ceiling and frescoes according to the Bridal Chamber of Mantegna.
  • The Hall of Maps which showcases reproductions of old maps.
  • The grand Renaissance garden that represents historical formal gardens and contains a wide variety of trees and plants.
  • The National Archaeological Museum that exhibits a beautiful collection of artefacts which includes pottery figures and paintings.

The palazzo also has detailed descriptions about the exhibits in English and a friendly staff who can guide you through the place.
