wonderful exhivition

I went to see De Chirico's exhibition. It was overwhelming . Well organized with not only Chirico, but several his contemporary painters.

A masterpiece of renaissance architecture, it houses the Ferrara Art museum. As this is Italy, there's Madonnas, Jesuses and Saints galore. And frescoes. It's still worthwhile to visit though...

The building itself is worth to see. We wanted to get into the gallery, but at 2 p.m. they closed! Very unfriendly.

it gets its name from the small pyramids on the outer walls...or even from being the house where only precious people live! the members of the ruling family are the diamonds of the Society in the 15th to the 19th centuries. Its inner Gallery of art is worth a visit because of the paintings by Ercole De Roberti and Cosmè... More

From what we have seen, the Palazzo itself has nothing spectacular inside. The outside is interestingly unusual. The real treat was the exhibition on Catalan artistes, which is unfortunately closed by the time you read these lines !
