Casa Romei is the only building in Ferrara that still manages to convey the charm and atmosphere of an elegant building built between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
Around 1440 Giovanni Romei, a wealthy merchant, landowner, banker and official of the Este house, began the construction of his domus magna in the heart of Ferrara. In the beautiful courtyard and in the frescoed decorations of the rooms and the loggias late-Gothic and Renaissance elements blend together.
Giovanni Romei's home is a unique example of architecture from the early fifteenth century Ferrara.
On the ground floor there are the original and magnificent decorations of a taste between the late Gothic and Renaissance: the Sibyls' Room and the Prophets' Room.
The museum, which offers the view of precious frescoes detached from buildings in Ferrara now lost and preserves precious paintings and sculptures by great artists such as Donatello or Alfonso Lombardi, gives visitors the opportunity to discover an ancient Ferrara no longer existing.
