Palazzo Roverella

The Palazzo Roverella is a Renaissance-style palace located at the Corner of Corso della Giovecca and Via Boldini, in Ferrara. The design and construction of the palace (1508) is attributed to Biagio Rossetti, as commissioned by Gaetano Magnanini, secretary of Duke Alfonso I d'Este. It is built at the start of the region known as the "Addizione Erculea". The palace became property of the Roverella family in the 18th-century. The varying rhythm of placement of the windows and the terra-cotta pilasters with decoration recalling "grotteschi", with stone bases, give the facade an early-Mannerist-style. Above the pilasters are relief busts.
