About Palazzo Schifanoia, Ferrara

The Palazzo Schifanoia is a Renaissance palace that was primarily built as the recreation centre for the Este family, as the name suggests. Built in 1385, the palazzo houses the magnificent collection of the Civic Museum of Ancient Art which includes Greek pottery, manuscripts, ceramics and artefacts of ivories, bronzes and plaques.

The major highlights of the Palazzo Schifanoia are as follows:

  • Sala dei Mesi (The House of the Months) which showcases a spellbinding series of frescoes exhibiting the months of the years and their mythological attributes.
  • Sala delle Virtu (The House of Virtues) that exhibits beautiful sculptures of the various Virtues.
  • Sala delle Imprese (The Hall Company) that has a coffered ceiling and a wood and polychrome stucco.
  • The breathtaking façade of the palazzo that is distinctive because of the elegant marble portal designed by Francesco del Cossa.

There is also a quaint little café in the back gardens of the Palazzo Schifanoia where you can take a break from your sightseeing and grab some food and drinks. Unfortunately, due to the earthquake in May 2012, the guided tours of the palazzo are restricted to Hall of the Months and the Hall of the Virtues.

Palazzo Schifanoia, Ferrara Reviews

Google+
  • I just went there today, April 11, 2018, and it is closed for renovations. No indication for how long.

  • Nice historical place

  • Beautiful place for a quick visit. Not a lot to see inside, but what is there is interesting, especially if you have any interest in art history. Outside back area is lovely, and there is a cafe that is a great destination on nice days. Good wine selection and quite charming.

  • The most interesting ancient palace in town. Worth seeing more than other places. Lot of mystique. Good cafe attached

  • No surveillance, we were on a school trip an someone just got into the room where we left our bags and took all the money. Not worth a visit.
