Inscription: Ferrara: city of the Renaissance (Italy)
Ferrara: city of the Renaissance
C(ii) (iv) (vi)
The Committee decided to inscribe the property on the basis of criteria (ii), (iv) and (vi) considering that the site is of outstanding universal value, being a Renaissance city, remarkably planned, which has retained its urban fabric virtually intact. The developments in town planning expressed in Ferrara were to have a profound influence on the development of urban design throughout the succeeding centuries.
