Ferrara located in the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy is the first modern city and one of the culturally most important of Italian Renaissance city states. The historic centre of Ferrara has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. For three centuries the town was ruled by the Este family, whose Renaissance court was among the finest in Italy, attracting artists and writers alike.
