47. Ferdinando Canonici

Ferrara 1780-1873
The true father of this place, Canonici is the one who, as an “amateur architect”, planned the Charterhouse’s transformation into a monumental cemetery, based on four cloisters that replicated the ancient original cloister, and two large curving arcades. He is also credited with the pavement in Piazza delle Erbe, with the creation of the famous “listone”.
