The remains of a Roman villa that belonged to the family of the Bruttii Praesentes were found in the locality known as 'Madonna dei Colori' near the ancient road station Vicus Novus/Ad Novas, modern Osteria Nuova, some 53 km northeast of Rome.

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 42 D4 Monte Calvo

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Monte Calvo

This terraced villa lies above the course of the via Salaria on the southwest slope of Monte Calvo. The villa was identified and excavated to some extent in 1824-26 (Marzano 2007: 403). A large cache of high-quality sculpture was discovered, with many of those pieces ending up in Copenhagen. Epigraphic evidence suggests that the second century A.D. owner was one C. Bruttius Presens, a figure of some prominence during the reigns of Trajan and Hadrian.

Excavation of the site resumed in 1998. Geophysical survey was carried out by the British School at Rome in 2004.
