Beautiful serif inspired on renaissance (?) writing

Synthview's picture

Dear Typophiles,
I’ve found this beautiful font on explanation texts in the museum of the Castle “Estense” in Ferrara Italy.
I’d like to know if anyone recognises this font and how the style/influence could be classified.

Thanks in advance,
Jan

I think it’s DF Rialto designed by Giovanni di Faccio and Lui Karner.

Thanks akira1975! It looks the one :)
So the category would be humanist antiqua?
