Pinacoteca Nazionale of Ferrara

Housed on the first floor of the Palazzo Diamanti, comprised of the Hall of Honour and the sixteenth-century apartments of Virginia de’ Medici, the Pinacoteca Nazionale di Ferrara offers a significant overview of painting in Ferrara from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century: from the grand medieval fresco cycles from the churches of San Bartolo and Sant’Andrea, to the seventeenth century panels by Scarsellino, Carlo Bononi and Guercino, to the sketches by Gandofli and Crespi. Most notable is the collection of paintings from the fifteenth century, from the important late-gothic masters to Cosmè Tura, Ercole de’Roberti and others from the Ferrarese milieu. Alongside the fruits of a local artistic production are works by notable painters from beyond the confines of Ferrara such as Gentile da Fabriano, Andrea Mantegna, and Vittore Carpaccio. Since the opening of the Gallery in 1836, a large part of the collection has comprised of altarpieces from a number of municipal churches, among which are a series of works by Garofolo, one of the best followers of Raphael in northern Italy, creating works such as the majestic Costabili Polyptych in collaboration with Dosso Dossi. These painters mark the end of the Este era in Ferrara.
