Cantieri paralleli.The Study of Belfiore and the Bible of Borso. 1447-1463

Pinacoteca Nazionale - Palazzo dei Diamanti - Corso Ercole I d'Este 21

Ferrara (FE)

The exhibition shows two very special works of art: Muse Polymnia, from Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, and the Bible of Borso d’Este, a masterpiece from the Estense Library in Modena
A shrine full of extraordinary treasures, the Estense Galleries (Modena-Ferrara-Sassuolo) will offer to the public, from december 2018, some unmissable news.
From December, ten rooms of the National Picture Gallery of Ferrara at Palazzo dei Diamanti will be reopened after a complete renewal. Important pieces by Gentile da Fabriano, Mantegna, Cosmè Tura, and Ercole de’ Roberti will be available to the public, within a new exhibition itinerary, enriched with information panels and graphic reconstructions from the 14th to the 18th Century.
The restoration has added a new room dedicated to the Study of Belfiore. Here, a very special work of art will be on display: Muse Polymnia, from Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, at leats riunite to Erato and Urania from Palazzo dei Diamanti. They all come from the decorative system of the place where Marquis Leonello d’Este practiced meditation as well as intellectual pleasures in the mid-15th Century.
The exhibition also offers the opportunity to admire the beautiful Bible of Borso d’Este, which decoration – a precious sample of Italian inlumination work – has been made by Matteo Crivelli and Franco dei Russi and their team. This was the second great “work in progress” in the 15th Century’s Ferrara.
A rich selection of medals, coins and gems are also on display from the Galleria Estense in Modena. Moreover, a “touch-screen” system will show the pages of the Bible, enlarging the miniatures and also visiting the Study of Belfiore, with its beautiful Muses.
