Ducato di Ferrara

Uncommon map showing the duchy of Ferrara. To the south are Bologna and Ravenna and the surrounding areas. To the East is the Adriatic Sea. The central waterway is the Po river and its many tributaries. North of the Po is part of the course of the Adige river. Part of the charm of this map is that so much detail is given to the rivers which branch out like a cobweb on the map. The title cartouche is flanked by angels bearing wine and fruit. [cod.085/15]
