Description

The building dates back to 130 BC and belonged to Quinto Servilio Pudente, a rich owner of brick furnaces during the imperial age of Hadrian (117-138 AD). It is one of the most important villas in the suburb of Rome. It was monumentalized in the second century AD with the building of luxuriant residential pavilions, gardens with nympheums and waterworks and a private termal bath. Inhabited for a long period, from the villa come many important sculptures and finds, today preserved in the major museums worldwide. You can still see a part of its monumental ruins.
