This is a perfectly preserved medieval and Renaissance city, it was run for centuries by the d'Este family, who started out as barely concealed thugs to develop into sophisticated Renaissance patrons, with an eye for town planning, in fact the city layout is the result of meticulous urban planning, completed and implemented in 1492. Ferrara is the first realization of the humanist concept of the ideal city and the only planned Renaissance town to have been completed.
