Casa di Ludovico Ariosto

The house, probably built to the design of Girolamo da Carpi, has a simple but elegant brick façade. "The house is small but suitable for me, clean, free of expenses and purchased solely with my own money", reads the inscription on the façade of the house where Ludovico Ariosto (1474 - 1533) spent his twilight years, devoting himself to the 3rd and final edition of Orlando Enraged (1532). The house, probably built to the design of Girolamo da Carpi, has a simple but elegant brick façade. Interior: on the first floor a small museum dedicated to the poet has been laid out. The room on the right conserves the bronze cast of his inkstand, editions of his works and many medals representing him.
