Ferrara Inside

Discovering Ferrara: Unesco World Heritage Site

Ferrara was an important hub of river trade in the Middle Ages and reached its height in the Renaissance under the rule of the House of Estense. Between the end of the 15th century and the beginning of the 16th century, the parts of town designed by Biagio Rossetti, based on a brand-new concept of urban planning,made modern-day Ferrara the epitome of the Renaissance city. Owing to its place in history, the city and its surroundings were recognised in 1995 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and perfect example of a Renaissance town.
