  • This beautiful pleasure villa dates back to the 17th century. Its façade is decorated with faces of Roman sarcophagi and armored bas-reliefs set in medallions. At the bottom of the central garden is a "crafted" statue, depicting Emperor Justinian, whose Giustiani family wanted to be descended. There are also Roman remains of the old collections that housed the house. But if you go to this quiet place, it is to admire the three rooms decorated in the 19th century by romantic painters of Germanic origin, called Nazarenes because of their ascetic appearance. They painted the walls of scenes inspired by the works of Dante, the Cup and the Ariast. The ensemble is bathed in a medieval, chivalrous and tragic atmosphere. A beautiful place, of course, but one that I could not appreciate at its true value, ignoring almost everything about the literary work of the three authors mentioned and the Nazarenes themselves. shame.

  • The Villa Giustiniani at the Lateran, also called Villa Massimo from the name of the subsequent owners, is a 17th century villa which stretched between the current means Merulana, Tasso, Viale Manzoni and Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano. Created a place so pleasant, semi abandoned, by the marchese Giustiniani in order to create a place of rest and recreation for her family, was sold at the beginning of ' 800 Maximum principles the building is a typical example of late 17th century Mannerist taste presents prospectuses embellished with antique sculptures and stucco decorations depicting Eagles dei Giustiniani and doves of the Pamphilj. The façade of the building overlooking via Bojardo, secondary side, presents, in the Centre of the façade, above the door, the front of a sarcophagus of the 3rd century AD, depicting the myth of Achilles and Skyros; the four side Windows have two medallions surrounded by crowns, internal investigations, and two bas-reliefs depicting the myth of Phaedra and the Muse, the external ones. Four fronts of sarcophagi, interspersed by the dove of the Pamphilj, coat of arms of wife Maria Pamphilj, form the frame in the center of which lies a balcony supported by an eagle, coat of arms of the Giustiniani.

In the living room on the ground floor there were even 8 ancient statues. In the halls beautiful frescoes inspired by scenes from the masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance Literature: Orlando Furioso of Ariosto, Tasso's Gerusalemme liberata. Then the villa during the Roman revolution del1848, step to Ladera who were responsible for most of the Park's wild land subdivision occurred after the unification of Italy; the building was purchased in 1948 by the fathers of the delegation of the Holy Land, who in 1951 began building a new building, which basically surrounded the three sides of the garden, transforming it into a sort of cloister. In the middle there is a fountain rustica surrounded by some ancient funerary altars, sculptural fragments, capitals, measly leftovers from the rich collection of Giustiniani.

  • Beautiful.
  • Casino Massimo Lancellotti (in Villa Giustiniani Massimo) - Rome The building, an example of the late Mannerist taste, was built in the early 1600s within a vineyard- cultivated land, purchased in 1605 by the Marquis Vincenzo Giustiniani, Prince of Bassano and custodian of the Apostolic Chamber. All four elevations of the building are enriched with bas-reliefs, medallions framed by crowns and stucco decorations depicting the eagles of the Justinians and the doves of the Pamphilj. In the facade on Via Boiardo, above the portal, is inserted the side of a sarcophagus of the 3rd century A.D. depicting the myth of Achilles and Scus. At the end of the 18th century the villa was purchased by Prince Charles Maximus. The interiors (the three rooms on the garden side) were frescoed between 1817 and 1829 with scenes from the major poems of Italian literature and are the most important testimony of the artistic activity, of the Nazarenes, painters who were inspired by the Italian painting of the early Renaissance. In particular: Ariosto Room - Episodes of the Furious Orlando frescoed by J. F. Overbeck, P.Veit, J.A.Koch Room of the Badger - Episodes of the Liberated Jerusalem by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld and J. F. Overbeck Dante's Room - Scenes of Paradise and Purgatory frescoed by J. A. Koch In 1848 the villa passed to the Lancellotti family who sold much of the park as a fabricable area. A peculiarity: in 1885 the portal of the wall of the villa was donated to the City of Rome which placed it in 1931 as the entrance of Villa Celimontana. Since 1948 the building has been home to the delegation of Franciscans of the Holy Land.

  • Spectacular frescoes in the Casino dating back to the beginning of the nineteenth century performed by the Nazarenes, northern European artists who moved to Rome to study classical art. These are three rooms (Dante's Rooms, Ariosto and Tasso). Beautiful very manicured garden with circular fountain in the center, where traffic noises come muffled. The complex is owned by the Custody of the Holy Land, an order founded by St. Francis in 1209.

  • We were intrigued to visit this place after having found, in a known specialist magazine an service in this regard. We fired up on the opening hours and when we showed up at the entrance the gate was closed. We rang the bell and the caretaker opened us up confirming the possibility of the visit perhaps a little surprised because of the tourists wanting to visit that place. In fact three rooms frescoed certainly of value, but absolutely not valued. It would be desirable to have a volunteer who would at least illustrate the place and the works. Perhaps we must learn from other peoples that even a small work of art is valued.
