Museo di Casa Romei

Ferrara

Casa Romei was built by the merchant, Giovanni Romei around the mid fifteenth century, and it was decorated on the occasion of his wedding with Polissena d'Este.

The courtyard was in the late Gothic style and this together with the floral decorations, the Hall of the Sibille and the Prophets as well as  the "Studiolo" constitutes an unique exemple of the gothic style of Ferrara.

Afterwards, the ceilings of the rooms on the first floor (XVI century), were decorated with grotesquesand the Main Hall with the Ippolito II d'Este coat of arms . The property was acquired by the State in 1898.

Casa Romei became a veritable museum in 1953 and received collections of frescoes, statues and lapidaries from city buildings.
