Description

Villa Torlonia is the most recent in history of the noble villas in Rome. The surrounding gardens formerly belonging to the Torlonia family, are an excellent example of English ‘picturesque’ style. It was designed by the neo-Classic architect Giuseppe Valadier for the Marquis Giovanni Torlonia (1756–1829), and was finished by his son Alessandro (1800–1880). He instructed Valadier to make the roman villa as beautiful as those of the other nobles. In 1977 Villa Torlonia was purchased by the City of Rome in 1978 and was open to the public. Since the 1990s, the Municipality has launched a series of restorations to the park, only recently finished.
