Overview

If you go through the San Pancrazio entrance to the Doria Pamphilj villa and follow the road upwards, you will reach a small piazza with beautiful flowerbeds. The monumental arch is there, forming a second triumphal entrance to the villa. The arch was built by Andrea Busirici in Casino dei Quattro Venti. The Casino and the nearby Vascello were destroyed and you can still see some of the ruins of these buildings that defended the Roman Republic. The arch has recently been restored; it is red in color and is made up of three portals (the center archway being the largest). There are two small white marble statues at the top of the center archway that stand to either side of the noble family's crest.
