XV-century villa on the banks of the Rodano river where the poet Ludovico Ariosto, born in 1474, stayed for long periods. The villa is approached by passing through a XVI-century terracotta arch and then following a long tree-lined avenue. The building's eastern wing is particularly interesting, having conserved the 15th century structure and where the "Camerino dei Poeti" (the Poets room), the "Camerino degli Orazi e Curiazi" (the Horatii and Curiatii room) and the "Camerino dell'Ariosto" (Ariosto's room) can be seen, containing sixteenth century frescoes depicting hunting, landscape, romantic, and historic scenes, and portraits of literary figures, in perfect harmony with the courtly and literary tastes of the time.
