The ducal residence of Castelnuovo in Ferrara is an interesting example of fifteenth-century monumental architecture. Through many additions, conversions and demolitions of its structures this architecture has affected, deeply and for a long time, the urban development and the shape of the defensive structures of the city, so much as to be still perfectly readable in contemporary urban morphology. This paper is based on these features and I will try to investigate the architecture of the building both in its historical and contemporary conditions. In particular, I will address historical investigation that will lead to clarify building phases of the ducal architecture and specifically the phases relating to the transformation process from a castle into an unsolved urban episode, an urban gap.

Abstract

The ducal residence of Castelnuovo in Ferrara is an interesting example of fifteenth-century monumental architecture. Through many additions, conversions and demolitions of its structures this architecture has affected, deeply and for a long time, the urban development and the shape of the defensive structures of the city, so much as to be still perfectly readable in contemporary urban morphology. This paper is based on these features and I will try to investigate the architecture of the building both in its historical and contemporary conditions. In particular, I will address historical investigation that will lead to clarify building phases of the ducal architecture and specifically the phases relating to the transformation process from a castle into an unsolved urban episode, an urban gap.
