The Bentivoglio Complex is composed of:

Bentivoglio Castle

The Castle was built between 1475 and 1482 by Giovanni II Bentivoglio.

It consists of two arcades, a large courtyard, large windows, welcoming rooms with annexed utility rooms, stables, and simple corridors with intriguing decorations.

It will be possible to visit the entire interior and exterior of the Castle, excepting only the area reserved for the Ramazzini Institute.

Palazzo Rosso

Palazzo Rosso (Red Palace) is a marvelous building overlooking the Navile, and is perhaps one of the best-known examples of the Bolognese Liberty style. Simple and elegant, it summarizes the local and international characteristics of European art between the 19th and 20th centuries.

Pizzardi Mill

The Pizzardi Mill in Bentivoglio was built by Guido Lambertini on the banks of the Navile canal in Ponte Poledrano in the mid-1300s. Subsequently, in 1817, the Pizzardi family bought it together with the vast complex of buildings and businesses that had risen between the two branches of the Navile canal.
