|La Festa del Barbarossa|
|a parade in medieval costumes|
|Locking up the women. I wonder why??|
The prize? A banner, designed every year by a local artist and embellished with embroidery. We never learned who won the race, but it was fun watching the event!
|The race is on!|
|is that a bowl of wine?|
|Castello Estense, complete with moat|
Imposing towers stand out at the four corners of the castle, symbols of the magnificence of the Este Family, who ruled the area and lived in the castle.
|Strategically placed mirrors help to view the paintings on the ceiling.|
|The cathedral of Ferrara dates from the 12th century|
|The streets of Ferrara|
