A Roman villa that was, in antiquity, located along the via Ardeatina, perhaps at the ninth mile. Excavations by Carlo Fea (1828) and twentieth century excavations (1939) recorded the villa on the land of the Cecchignola (formerly a property of the Torlonia family). The precise location of the archaeological site is today unknown.

unlocated, villa


This was a large and important villa that begins likely in the second century B.C. Its early phases include opus quadratum architecture using tufo and peperino. A second and third phase expanded the villa from the first century B.C. through to the second century A.D.

The republican villa sits atop a basis villae. A system of rock-cut cunuculi was documented in 1939.
