Magnificent palace in the center of Ferrara, the ancient Renaissance capital of the ’Granducato Estense’ and listed on the UNESCO ”World Heritage Site”. Ferrara is home to a modern University Center, and is located a few kilometers from the sea and the capital of Emilia Romagna with an international airport. Designed by the famous Girolamo da Carpi, a well-known architect of the time, this residence was built according to the rules of the so-called ”Golden Proportion”, a synthesis of beauty, harmony and nature. The property, built in the shape of a horseshoe, overlooks a courtyard of about 420 square meters, unique for its rare beauty and which allows access to the different wings of the building.
Recognized by the Superintendence of Fine Arts as a national monument, of great architectural and cultural value, this perfectly preserved palace, has recently been the subject of a careful restoration including static and anti-seismic consolidation of its roofs and attics that have been entirely insulated. It is a precious residence, formerly the residence of the Dukes of Varano, Lords of the Feud of Camerino and blood relatives of the Dukes of Ferrara. It has always been used as a private residence, which has also been the backdrop to important international film productions. It is embellished with frescoes and decorations of great impact and sensation. The building covers a total area of about 3000 square meters, currently divided into 7 independent real estate units that can return to be a unicum as per the original sixteenth-century project through a simple work of elimination of some of the wall partitions.
Including a unique rear garden, also of Renaissance design, which covers an area of about 1600 square meters, as well as several parking spaces. Perfect as a residence, as corporate headquarters of high representation, for the construction of a Charming Hotel or as a Private Art Gallery. If desired, it is possible to acquire a portion equal to more than half of the property and equipped with a vast part of the garden and parking spaces.
