Palazzo dei Diamanti

The building, begun by the great architect Biagio Rossetti in 1493, is a vibrant symbol of the prestige and glory of the House of este. Its name derives from the 8500 diamond-shaped stones on the ashlar facing.
The exhibition space is housed on the ground floor, and is widely renowned for the important exhibitions managed by Fondazione Ferrara Arte (Ferrara Art Foundation) and the Gallerie d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (Modern and Contemporary Art Galleries).
