Casa Romei, Ferrara

A baldresca is an architectural element supporting a loggia.[1] The element is of the medieval tradition and looks like a shelf with a supporting function. A baldresca has no columns.


A notable example of the use of baldrescas is in the Casa Romei (a 15th-century building located in Ferrara, known precisely for a peculiar mixture of medieval and Renaissance elements), where they support the east loggia.[2]
