Located in the heart of the Po Valley, Ferrara presents itself with the intact atmosphere of its past, harmoniously married with that of its lively present. The most famous image is certainly that of its great Renaissance, the era of the splendor of the Estense court, which has left indelible marks everywhere: in the colossal project of the Addizione Erculea, in the imposing pictorial cycles of the 15th and 16th centuries, and in Bastianino's Giudizio Universale.

The center of the city, a privileged place for meetings, entertainment and shows, is dominated by the imposing piers of the buildings of power: the Castello Estense, an ancient 14th-century fortress later the residence of the Dukes of Este in the 16th century, and the splendid Cathedral, a harmonious fusion of Gothic and Romanesque styles.
