Villa Giulia and the National Etruscan Museum, Rome

The Villa Giulia was built by Pope Julius III in 1551-1553 on what was then the edge of the city of Rome as he wanted to be far away from the smells of the waters of the River Tiber. The villa was built as his country retreat and he decorated it with innumerable statues which were later moved by Pope Paul IV who confiscated all the properties owned by his predecessor. Today the Villa is publicly owned and houses the Museo Nazionale Etrusco. Since 1889 it has been the most important Etruscan museum in Italy.
