Museum of Palazzo Schifanoia

The Room of the Months opens on May 15th; the Civic Museum ( in the 14th-century wing of the palace) is still temporary closed.
Situated in the 14th-century wing of the Palazzo Schifanoia since 1898, it houses works of a various nature including paintings, manuscripts, small bronzes, objects in ivory and decorated ceramics.

Particularly interesting is the small showcase, containing medals, some by Pisanello. Among the personalities represented are many Este family members, from Leonello to Ercole I, from Lucrezia Borgia to Lucrezia de’ Medici. Also of note is the 15th-century alabaster Polyptych, made in a Nottingham workshop and given to the Este family by the King of England. The seven panels, now without their original frame, still show some of their colour and represent scenes from the Passion.
