Owner description: Casa Romei was built by the merchant Giovanni Romei around the mid fifteenth century, and constitutes a unique renaissance mansion in Ferrara. Original decorations from the age of its first owner, elegant courtyards, loggias, halls, make it an exceptional landmark inside the ancient city centre. During the time that the house formed part of the Monastery of Corpus Domini, the ceilings of the rooms on the first floor (XVI century), were decorated with elegant grotesques. Casa Romei became a veritable museum in 1953 and received collections of frescoes, statues and lapidaries from mostly destroyed ancient city churches and civil buildings. Therefore you can discover -inside its 15 rooms- witnesses from a forgotten town. The echoes of important artists, such as Donatello, Francesco Dal Cossa, Gregorio di Lorenzo, Bastianino, Alfonso Lombardi, make the visit inside Casa Romeo an unforgettable experience of a greater interest.
