Marble figures stand in two niches that flank the main entrance of Palazzo Ducale; they are Hercules, on the left, and the Roman Consul Aemilius Lepidus. Carved 1560, these are the work of the sculptor Prospero Spani, known as “Il Clemente,” from Reggio Emilia. These sculptures were given to Duke Rinaldo d’Este in 1724.
The eastern facade is in the Neoclassical style and was completed in 1819 by the architect Gusmano Soli.
