 Today's view

The Plate (No. 185)

Secondo prospetto del casino di Villa Madama

Maybe the reason for the predilection of Vasi for Villa Madama is the fact that it was in the possession of his king, the King of Naples.


The view today

The view is taken from Foro Italico a large modern sport complex at the foot of Monte Mario. The main stadium of Rome (Stadio Olimpico, because of the 1960 Olympics Games) is part of this complex, but what is more interesting is the Stadio dei Marmi (Marble Stadium) where the provinces of Italy are unexpectedly represented by male nudes.
