Muisical instruments

A small but very precious series of musical instruments.

A small but very precious series of musical instruments, now housed in the Estense Gallery, offers fascinating evidence of the passion for music which, at different times and in different ways, fired the patronage and collecting interests of the Este Dukes. Despite being heterogeneous in terms of the periods, styles and materials of the artefacts, this section of the gallery nevertheless succeeds in tracing the collecting tastes of the Este dynasty from the splendours of the Ferrara Renaissance through to the lavish seventeenth-century Baroque.
