Erected in 1451 in Ferrara, this equestrian statue would have been the oldest surviving equestrian statue since antiquity, had it not been destroyed during the Napoleonic invasions in 1796. Niccolò Baroncelli sculpted the horse and Antonio di Cristoforo the rider. A later copy of this statue is placed on a marble base in the form of a triumphal arch, termed the Arco del Cavallo.
