Villa Adriana is a huge villa which is located in Tivoli (about twenty kilometers from Rome), built by the emperor Hadrian. Adriano, who had been educated very deep by Hellenistic tutors, was, from an early age, very impressed by the oriental culture and classical Greece.
This led him to have a vision of the role of emperor more absolutist. Precisely for this reason to separate from the people and from the subjects (as he understood it) decided to erect this magnificent building, which still remains a very important historical heritage and a testament to the great ability of the Romans in the construction of buildings.
Hadrian's Villa was declared a World Heritage Site in 1999.
