The Villa del Casale’s remarkable features, starting with the initial excavations in 1800 and continuing through the final restorations, were “the magnificent remains of magnificent mosaics” and “the polychrome floors of its splendid villa of late Imperial Age”. (G.V. Gentili).
Its impressive mosaic complex was the reason for including the villa in the Unesco World Heritage Sites list. This makes it one of the most significant examples of the “Villa”, an architectural style that combines high-quality residential characteristics with functional elements for agricultural activities.
