When people talk about visiting Roman villas in Italy it pays to ask which one. In addition to the impressive Roman remains there are many more that date to the Renaissance and early Baroque era that are the result of the Renaissance rediscovering Roman architecture and reinterpreting it to their own taste. The result is impressive villas imitating Tivoli or the wall painting of the Domus Aurea and rebuilding on Roman sites described in antiquity.
This villa will look at some of these such as the Villa d’Este and the Farnesina and explore how far the Roman influence went.
