Rome, Villa Torlonia


The only way to understand the magnificence and the value of this villa is knowing about the Torlonias at the beginning of the XIX century. They had come to Italy from France; Marino Torlonia first worked as a servant, then became the owner of a silk factory. At the end of the XVIII century he established the Torlonia Bank, the first source of wealth for the entire family.
