Pleiades

The Roman villa at Varignano Vecchio was built in the early first century B.C., on the site of a residential building that marks the first settlement a few decades earlier. The main architectural phases date to:

  1. the period of Sulla, when the complex was built in its entirety with a large and monumental pars urbana and a pars fructuaria, from which the torcularia are archaeologically preserved;
  2. the first half of the first century A.D., when new thermal baths were built together with an imposing water cistern, while oil production was discontinued;
  3. the late fourth century A.D., when large transformations occur in the plan of the complex, but more detailed traces from this phase are not otherwise recognisable due to ploughing.
