Palazzo Schifanoia

The old Este family residence, a symbol of entertainment and the power of the court, is one of the most precious art treasures of the city.
Its name, Schifanoia, derives from its original function: "schifare la noia", to banish the boredrom.
Constructed from 1385 onwards, its first floor houses the celebtrated Cycle of Months painted by Francesco del Cossa, Ercole de' Roberti and other artists of the Ferrara school.
