WELCOME THE VILLINO VOLTERRA
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.
The estate is nestled in the beautiful setting of a luscious garden, filled with ancient trees. It is wonderfully harmonious, lively and full of surprises.

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.
