Some notes about Ludovico Ariosto’s house architecture in Ferrara
The essay is one of the results of a on-going research on historical architecture features in Ferrara during Estense Duchy (1471-1598). The aim of this activity is to explore some architectural case studies through historical approach to give a correct comprehension of the buildings and of their transformations in the time. This paper analyses Ludovico Ariosto’s house in Contrada Mirasole and its constructive and linguistic features: the evaluation on the building came from the investigation of primary and secondary sources and the consequent critical intersection of these, to give a new interpretation about architectural language theme and to recognize analogies or differences with local tradition.
