Villa d'Este

The Villa d'Este is a villa situated at Tivoli, near Rome. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, it is a masterpiece of Italian architecture and garden design. The chief painter of the ambitious internal decoration was Livio Agresti from Forlì.

The Villa d'Este was commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito d'Este, who had been appointed Governor of Tivoli by Pope Julius III. From 1550 until his death in 1572, he created a palace surrounded by a fabulous terraced garden in the late-Renaissance mannerist style.
