Restoration interventions

In the last ten years the villa has been occasionally maintained. The buildings near the villa –not accessible and estimable- were converted and adapted within, while the villa suffered a long decay  and currently it is in a bad state of conservation. In particular, the main salon, the towers, all the rooms not used and the grotto in the garden show considerable signs of deterioration.
