The history of the Palazzina San Nicolò

The monastic complex of San Nicolò was built by the Benedictine monks in the 15th century. XII. Rebuilt in the 1475, Duke Ercole I D'Este ceded the priory of the church to the Augustinian friars. These started the expansion works entrusting, for the certainty of an indisputable result, the building site to the ducal architect Biagio Rossetti who created a majestic apse in advance of the one built for the cathedral of Ferrara.
The friars remained in San Nicolò until 1668, when Pope Celemente XI suppressed the community. In 1668 the church and the convent were entrusted to the Somaschi fathers. In the 1796, at the arrival of the Napoleonic troops the Somascan fathers were driven out and the convent stripped of all property and converted to the French barracks. In 1809 the church was used as a prison and in 1811 it was acquired by the municipality of Ferrara. In the 1820 in the convent a menagerie of wild beasts was housed
fierce, while in the 1825 church and convent were destined to barracks and stable, condition that remained until the thirties of the twentieth century. In 1936 the recovery plan was approved in order to bring the church back to its original appearance.
From the 1942 the Renaissance building, part of the former convent, belongs to our family.
