Villa Falconieri in Frascati

Today it has been carried in Frascati the first meeting italian of trekearth , the participation has been numerous is amuses a lot and has made many photos.


At the beginning of the XVIIth century Cardinal Scipione Borghese planned to open a new road which would link Rome with his possessions near Frascati. The road was never completed but the gate at its Frascati end (Portale delle armi) became a benchmark for the gates of the other villas.
In 1733 cardinal Alessandro Falconieri thought to give to his villa an entrance comparable with Portale delle Armi, but in the years during which the property did not care about the villa a tree blocked the alley leading to the casino.




Villa Falconieri

The casino was initially built by monsignor Ruffini in 1549 and thus it is also called Villa la Rufina. It was acquired by the Falconieri in 1628 and the casino was entirely rebuilt in the late 1660s. In general its design is attributed to Francesco Borromini who worked for the Falconieri. The casino was recently repainted with light blue colours.
