Overview

The entrance to the villa is decorated with the coat of arms of the Carpegna family. Construction of the villa began towards the end of the 17th Century and the building has undergone many alterations since then, becoming a public area in 1981. At the end of the 17th Century a nymphaeum was built, decorated with a colored mosaic known as the "donkey's grotto" because the villa's owners dedicated this fountain to a donkey of which they had been very fond.
