Villa Jovis: Orario aprile 2017

Villa Jovis, orario aprile 2017: Tutti i giorni ore 10-18, ultimo ingresso ore 17.15.  Chiuso martedì.

Neoclassical verandah

The large parterre overlooking the garden and looking out towards the sea was once an area that joined the rooms of the ground floor to the surrounding park.

The iron and glass roof, added in the late nineteenth century, and the French windows between the columns completely changed  its original function, transforming the area into a kind of ‘winter garden’. Its imposing Neo-Doric peristyle, inspired by the temples of Paestum, was the result of the inventive imagination of the architect  Pietro Valente who sought to introduce a revival of the Pompeian villa.

His eccentric designs attracted harsh criticism from his fellow architects. The verandah is now used for concerts, lectures and other cultural events. It contains works in marble from the second half of the eighteenth century and copies of Neoclassical sculptures.
