REINESSANCE VILLA LANTE


Guided tour of Villa Lante, considered one of the most remarkable late 16th century buildings in Italy.
In the dense woodlands of the Cimini Hills, Cardinal Riario created a hunting reserve in 1514, the "Barco." Later Bishop Gambara transformed the Barco into a vast Italian-styled park with fountains and a palace with frescoes by Tempesta and Raffaellino Reggio. Cardinal Montalto, who succeded Gambara, ordered a second Palace, frescoed by Tassiand Cavalier d'Arpino.

Natural elements like water, the green of the vegetation, and the stone of the building
are fused together into a single harmonious unit.
