Villino Volterra is located in the Castelli Romani area, 24 kilometers from the center of Rome, at one end of the monumental bridge that connects Albano Laziale to the square of Ariccia. Built in the early 1900s it maintains the charm of those times.


The buildings and gardens were designed and built between 1904 and 1907 by the architect Architetto Giulio Magni for the renowned mathematician Vito Volterra.

Una visita al villino Volterra è una esperienza unica perché permette di entrare nel contesto vivo e attuale di una casa accogliente e armoniosa e di un giardino pieno di reminiscenze e di umori, un vero e proprio orto botanico-archeologico in cui si avverte la presenza e la dedizione di una importante famiglia di intellettuali e soprattutto di Vito che la volle e la amò.

What a wonderful place this is!
So perfect for our (semi-)mathematical purposes, and so utterly delightful and charming.
I was so happy to have the opportunity of meeting you, and can’t tell you how much I appreciated and enjoyed your lively and educational description of the history of the family and the property. You clearly appreciate the good fortune you have had to be born into such an exceptional family.
