Palazzo Roverella (Roverella Palace)

This majestic Ferrarese tiled building, owned by the Municipality of Rovigo, dominates the block between the main square and what was once the riverbed of Adigetto (now Corso del Popolo). Its construction started in 1474 commissioned by Cardinal Bartolomeo Roverella and is traditionally attributed to workers from Ferrara, who were close to the architect Biagio Rossetti. Heavily altered by works during the following centuries, the palace still maintains its original decorative elements of the Renaissance.

After a long and precise renovation, the ancient residential part has been turned into an exhibition site and hosts the Accademia dei Concordi and Episcopal Seminary of Rovigo’s Art Gallery Collection, as well as prestigious temporary art and photography exhibitions, which attract visitors from all over the world, sponsored by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Padova and Rovigo in collaboration with the Municipality of Rovigo.
