Cathedral Museum

The Cathedral Museum, sited in the ex church of San Romano, was created through a join initiative between the Cathedral Chapter and the Municipality of Ferrara with the aim of documenting the history of the most important sacred temple of Este spirituality
Cathedral Museum
The collection is made up of ecclesiatic- and municipality-owned works. These include two great masterpieces such as the series of tiles by the Maestro dei Mesi (1225-30 ca.); the grandiose Madonna of the pomegranate by Jacopo della Quercia (1403-06); the splendid tapestries with the stories of Saints George and Maurelius (1551-53) woven by Johannes Karcher based on a drawing by Garofalo and Camillo Filippi; the monumental organ panels depicting Saint George and the dragon and the Annunciation by Cosmè Tura and the series of 24 anthem books illuminated starting from 1481 by Guglielomo Giraldi, Martino da Modena and Jacopo Filippo Medici.
