Villa Giustiniani

Villa Giustiniani is a Renaissance palace located in Bassano Romano. On the inside, we can find important frescoes realised by authors such as Domenichino, Tempesta, Paolo Guidotti and Francesco Albani. Owned by the Anguillara, it was only in the seventheenth century that important expansion works were carried out: the Giustiniani, new owners of the building, transformed the original castle into a Villa-Palazzo: the main floor was added, connected to the gardens by a drawbridge, walls around the park of 24 hectares (with hunting lodge) were built, statues, fountains and water games were placed and the church of San Vincenzo Martire was realised. In this way Bassano, glory of the Giustiniani family, was configured as an international destination, hosting the Pope and various princes. Especially by virtue of the splendid interiors, the villa has been the set of numerous documentaries, commercials and films: among the latter there are Federico Fellini's "La dolce vita", Roberto Rossellini's "Blaise Pascal", Luchino Visconti's "Il Gattopardo" and Tonino Cervi's "L'avaro", with Alberto Sordi.
