Ferrara Discovering Medieval and Renaissance Town
Ferrara is unique town between Florence and Venice Throughout the Middle Ages and almost to the end of the 15th century, the northern boundary of the city ran along the current road System of Viale Cavour-Corso Giovecca. To the north of this boundary there were a number of buildings, even prestigious ones, some of which were owned by the Duke. In 1492 Ercole I commissioned Biagio Rossetti to include this vast area in the centre (thus doubling the surface area of the city) and the great architect and town-planner designed a plan which, due to its original and rational nature, made Ferrara the first modern city in Europe.In honour of the Duke who ordered its building this great district is known as Addizione Erculea.
