Photographer's Note

The Palazzo dei Diamanti is one of the most famous monuments of Ferrara and the Renaissance Italian work of Biagio Rossetti.

The Building is situated in the Quadrivio degli angeli, really in the center of the Addizione Erculea and it was build for order of Sigismondo of Este in 1492. Its principal characteristic is the external bugnato to form of diamond that is composed from around 8.500 blocks of veined white marble of rose. The surface of the fašade is enlivened twisting her traditional hierarchies up to the exaltation of the angle and the edge. Interesting they are the perspective artifices what the sketch of the "stung" of the diamonds that direct him I now pour earth, now centrally and upward in to go up again from the inferior part of the monument.

Today the Building entertains the Pinacoteca Nazionale with shows of high-level.
