DANILO LEADS US BACK IN TIME, A DISCOVERY TOUR OF THIS VILLA HOUSING AN ORIGINAL ROMAN MOSAIC


In Umbria, in Città di Castello, luxury villa with guesthouse, annex and pool (16 × 9 m). The property, which is in excellent condition and stands out for its elegance and refinement, has ten bedrooms and nine bathrooms and features a 2nd-century Roman mosaic. The villa was originally a 17th-century convent and was restored in 1980s by the Japanese architect Kazuhide Takahama. Roughly 2.0 ha of land host a wonderful park with prestigious plants.

The villa (960 sqm – 10,330 sqft) was originally a small convent, built in the 17th century over the ruins of a Roman villa. Inside the building, one can find a beautiful black-and-white mosaic that has been dated to the 1st and 2nd century AD (the surface is a trapezoid measuring 6 × 3.6 × 5.6 × 3.1 m). In ancient times, this mosaic probably paved a whole room inside the villa.

However, in the 1980s the villa underwent a total renovation which was carried out under the supervision of the Japanese architect Kazuhide Takahama (1930 – 2010): the designer took care of reworking the garden, by adding his personal touch, and several of the elements visible in the house were specifically designed by Takahama.
