This 17th-century villa, its rooms decorated by German painters active in Rome in the first half of the 19th century, is far from the beaten track. The Casino Giustiniani was built at the beginning of the 16th century as a country residence by Vincenzo Giustiniani, and was later acquired by the Massimo family. They commissioned the Nazarenes to decorates the three rooms on the ground floor with frescoes in the fashion of the great Italian masters of the past. This resulted in a number of exquisite masterpieces. Through the language of images the walls read the texts that have shaped Italian history, from Dante’s Divine Comedy to Tasso’s Jerusalem Delivered through Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso.
