In the Eternal City, where beauty abounds, there's a small road leading to a hidden gem amidst the dense vegetation of the Gianicolo Hill: Villa Piccolomini, a timeless masterpiece whose history begins in the days of ancient Rome and unfolds over the centuries. The first owner of the residence was Orazio Manili, in the early 1600s, who included it in an area of several hectares dedicated to wine production: it was he who undertook the restoration of the noble casino dating back to the previous century, the same building that is today the heart of the Villa.
Then, the property passed to the Sforza Marescotti family, and, from 1906, finally entered the possessions of the Piccolomini family, who built a second villa, restored the secondary casino, and constructed a service building. Later, Anna Menotti Piccolomini wanted to dedicate the Villa to her son Nicolò, a count-actor who disappeared during the Second World War, and who left the residence in inheritance to his colleagues, theater artists: access to the public was forbidden for a long time. Today, the privilege of experiencing a unique event in a dream location, among the most prestigious in the Capital, is possible: the splendor of the elegant and airy structure of Villa Piccolomini is enhanced by the lively and immortal beauty of the perfect symmetry that distinguishes the exterior, with its harmonious and pure lines welcoming visitors, enveloping them in an atmosphere of exquisite enchantment.
The magnificent park surrounding the residence offers an unparalleled view of St. Peter's Basilica, and, among the pines and gardens of the estate, from the ancient portico that runs alongside the Italian garden, one can glimpse the majestic Dome of Michelangelo.
Inside, the grand, opulent halls perfectly connect with the external paths in a harmonious succession of elegance and familiarity, making every event perfect. Over the years, Villa Piccolomini has hosted famous weddings, film shootings, and major events, giving each of them the special style of a unique charm, in a setting of great allure, with flowers, lights, and music, specifically designed to fulfill every request, in an atmosphere unique in its kind and even more precious because incredibly rare.
