Palazzo Schifanoia

Open Details
The first stop on the route is Palazzo Schifanoia. It was built for the Este family. The name Schifanoia is derived from 'Schivar la noia', which loosely translated means 'to abhor boredom', or even better, 'to flee from boredom'. When you visit Palazzo Schifanio, you certainly won't get bored.
The construction of the Palazzo began in 1385 and the great hall, the 'Salone dei mesi', built by Den by Pietro Benvenuto, was frescoed by Cosmè Tura, Ercole de' Roberti and Francesco del Cossa, among others. The stucco work in the sala della virtù was done by Domenico di Paris.
Note: Palazzo Schifanoia is closed on Mondays.
