We went to see the Michelangelo Antonioni special exhibit which runs through June 9, 2013. It is a tribute to his cinema and modern art influenced by Pollack, De Chirico and Rothko. The film-maker grew up in the fog of Ferrara on the Po River plain. Film clips are shown from Blow-up The Adventure and Zabriskie Point and Antonioni's earlier Italian films from the 50's and 60's. A great exhibit worth seeing when in Ferrara. The palazzo was begun by Sigismondo d'Este around 1493 and takes it name from the 8,500 diamonds that form its original facing, The National Gallery of Art is located on the first floor and hold paintings from the 13thC to the18thC. there are paintings by Bellini, Jacopo and altar by El Greco. Lots of little old ladies and men attendants giving lots of warnings. We saw very few tourists here or in the city.
