Located on Volano Po, the city has an urban structure that dates back to the fourteenth century, when it was ruled by the Este family. The design by Biagio Rossetti became the first modern city in Europe, a fact which derives much of its recognition as a World Heritage Site in 1995 (the historical center of Ferrara), expanded in 1999 to the Po Delta. The origin of the name Ferrara is unclear: In fact there are several hypotheses. Some have thought of a Biblical derivation: from Ferrato, son of Ham and grandson of Noah. Others say that Ferrara was founded by a man who went to Ferrara Marco with his people, among them was a Trojan, Ferrara, and with this name designated the city that had begun to build. Others think it comes from iron, which was or is employed in the territory. The stronger hypothesis is that the name is spelled has reached a kind of durum wheat, the oldest food of the Romans, abounding, it seems, in the area. "Farraria" is the land where farro is grown. An herb named farraria, an aquatic plant species would be another possible origin. And finally, the place where they made two important fairs of the year (Palm Sunday and the day of Saint Martin) on the banks of the River Po was called Feriarum area (public square fairs), and hence Ferraria. Right at the back door of the Cathedral of San Giorgio is a picture of a child carved in marble, formerly called "Madonna Frara".
