Presentation
Villa d'Este, Italian masterpiece of garden art and Unesco Heritage
Site, is a much-copied example of European Mannerist and Baroque
gardens with its staggering concentration of fountains, nymphae,
grottoes, water games and hydraulic music. The landscape, historic
and artistic context of Tivoli, with ruins such as Villa Adriana and
a fascinating area of ravines, caves and waterfalls, increases the
beauty and prestige of the garden.

Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este, governor of Tivoli from 1550, revived
the ostentation of the courts of Ferrara, Rome and Fontainebleau
here, to recreate the magnificence of Villa Adriana. The project
of the painter-archaeologist-architect Pirro Ligorio was formulated
after 1560 and was subsequently carried out by Alberto Galvani,
the court architect.

On the death of the Cardinal in 1572 the organisation was almost
finished, but unfortunately we have no records of the initial display,
since the precious fittings and the collection of antique sculptures
have been lost. In the following century important new works were
undertaken, involving great masters such as Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
The halls of the villa were decorated following the directions of
protagonists of late Roman mannerism, including Muziano Agresti
and Federico Zuccai.

After a long period of neglect, plundering and deterioration the villa
became Italian State property, and a programme of restoration was
drawn up including the recent renovation of the Organ Fountain
and ''Bird Song''.
