Imperial Villa with refined decorations
Villa Poppaea Sabina, in the name of the second wife of Nero, is part of UNESCO’s intangible world heritage, because of its luxurious residential structure and thermal baths-both full of frescos. It is the classical example of Otium Villa because it was built in order to take advantage of the healty weather near the cost which helped them reinforce their spirit and body.
The buildings is embellished by fantastic pictorial decoration in Pompeian style but also by white marble sculpture in the garden or in the thermal baths. In Crassius Tertius Villa, a lot of amphora, weights and furnishings were found; that’s why they think this structure was used as a store of the surrounding agricultural products.
A part of the place was reserved for the dominus- the owner- as a huge number of frescos, jewelry and parts of more than 54 human bodies testify.
