I came to Ferrara Sunday afternoon and stayed here whole Monday when most of the museums and galleries are closed for the public visitors. Shame because I couldn't see the interriors of the magnificent Casa Romei from 1445.
The banker Giovanni Romei, husband of Polissena d'Este, commissioned it from the architect Pietro Benvenuti, who built it in a fusion of Ferrarese Gothic and Renaissance style. From the outside, it looks almost insignificant and one can easilly passed by without noticing it. The interiors, however, is richly decorated by open galleries and valuable frescoes.
