Built by Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este, son of Alfonso I and Lucrezia Borgia (Ferrara 1509 - Rome 1572), on a site that has in the past had been the site of a Roman villa.
The cardinal in 1550 was appointed Governor of Tivoli by Pope Julius III and transformed the convent in which reaction housed in a magnificent villa on which channeled the waters dell'Anienepr feed the many fountains in the park.
The work was completed in 1572, shortly before the death of the cardinal.
In 1918, after various vicissitudes the villa passed to the Italian state which prompted major restoration work, restoring full and opening it to the public.
Tusculum, city pre-Roman, Roman and medieval Lazio, whose origins can be traced back at least the eighth century BC, was razed in 1191 and since then abandoned.
It was adorned with a crown of gardens and villas, especially in its lower part, turned towards Rome
The first excavations began in the nineteenth century, and various excavations continued until the last, which ended in 2001. The site, located within the perimeter of the Regional Park of Castelli Romani, is currently owned by the Mountain Community Castelli Romani and Prenestini.

un bel salto dal paese fantasma a questa splendida villa.
Già le fontanelle parlano chiaro.
Bella sequenza e bei colori naturali, ottimo questo particolare, meglio di tanti altri scatti simili.

A splendid long perspective along these cascades. Pleasantly lit and perfectly exposed to capture the movement in the water. Excellent colours and sharpness.

belle composition, une belle perspective les jets d'eau semblent tendre vers l'infini... La lumière et le vert des fougères apportent une grande fraîcheur.

I know this UNESCO site is not far from Rome. But we eventually missed this spot because we didn't have enough time. Thanks for showing us this great place.

Une bonne composition avec cette fontaine,
la diagonale formée par la double rangée des tuyaux d'eau est superbe. C'est bien vu, et d'un bel effet.

So much history and good narrative accompanying this intriguing find showing serie of water outlets system rendering the compo a great strength with a lovely low shooting angle, lovely colour, contrast, extensive depth and the aged look that have an enchantment about them. Clarity is fine with lovely touch of green. Excellent photo work, and thks for sharing. Congrats
