In the charming setting of the Castle you will find on the second floor the Museum of the Woodland and the Deer of Mesola.
The exhibits illustrate, through cartographic documents, the evolution of the territory of Mesola and its most significant environmental features, including Gran Bosco della Mesola and its Deer of the dunes, also thanks to the elaboration of the latest scientific data under the supervision of the University of Ferrara. The Visitor will discover a collection of copies from the herbarium by Filippo De Pisis, the painter from Ferrara who in the early 20th century collected, classified, and preserved plants coming from Mesola Woodland and adjacent areas, before giving them to the University of Padova, where they are still preserved. A section is dedicated to the Deer of Mesola, a particular animal for its genetic features, its physical aspect, and its behavior; the exhibit summarizes its development, documenting it with the traces in the history and culture of Ferrara found in paleontological deposits, prehistoric, Etruscan, and Roman settlements, in the Christian worship, in the Renaissance art and traditions of Corte Estense in Ferrara.
This Museum represents a homage to the territory and an invitation to discover its rich history, culture, traditions, nature and tastes.
