Desenzano and Sirmione

Roman villas in Garda

The extraordinarily beautiful landscape of Lake Garda and the highly fertile surrounding land inspired the Romans to build villae d’otium [leisure residences] such as the one from late antiquity in Desenzano and the villa in Sirmione.

Topics covered:

  • the relationship with the territory and nature
  • architecture and residential premises
  • mosaic decorations
  • the people who lived in the villa
  • ideology and daily activities
