Hadrian’s Villa near Tivoli is the most extensive ancient roman villa, covering approximately 7 square miles, more or less as Pompeii. A garden city built by Emperor Hadrian from 117DC as an imperial palace, near the city of Rome. This villa is considered the epitome in architecture of the opulence and elegance of the Roman world. In 1999 was appointed one of the Human Heritage UNESCO Monuments , proclaimed a masterpiece that uniquely brings together the highest expressions of the material cultures of the Mediterranean world.  

The first extensive excavations date back to the middle of the XVI century. Pirro Ligorio excavated looking for statues and precious marbles which he later used in the decoration of the famous Villa d’Este. He has left three Codes where he describes his explorations and discoveries.

In modern times the proffesor De Angelis has been leading a dig at the site since 2013 with Marco Maiuro, adjunct history professor and associate fellow of Columbia’s Italian Academy. 

The seminar of archaeology from Pablo de Olavide university (UPO) in Seville (Spain) has undertaquen six campains at the ‘Palazzo’ (first palace built by emperor in Hadrian's villa). The project director is Rafael Idalgo, profesor of archaeology from the UPO.
The 'Palazzo' inside Villa Adriana was the first residential area that the emperor had in the Villa and it was always used throughout the life of the architectural complex. The "Palazzo" was constructed over an earlier structure, the so-called" Republican Villa, a preexisting building that was partly respected by the emperor and included in the new building.
The area where the team will be working in 2019 is located in the center of the Villa, where the most important spaces of representation and residence are located. This area is made up of large arcaded patios around which are distributed different spaces and rooms with various functions: banquet rooms, reception, monumental fountains and a library.
