The Villa of the Gladiator Emperor

This is a villa of the second century AD, founded by two Roman consuls, Sextus Quintilius Condiano and his brother Sextus Quintilius Valerius Maximus, covers at least 24 hectares.

In 182 AD the Emperor Commodus confiscated the villa after having sentenced the Quintili brothers of death for conspiracy.Commodus was known as “the Gladiator Emperor” and then he proceded to embellish the villa with constructions and expanding it until became the largest and richest house in the suburbs, on which he left the imprint of his obsession with fighting into the arena: Commodus was in fact the only Roman emperor to combat in the Colosseum.

Inside the villa, the area known as the “Maritime Theatre”, proved to be an arena used for training, fighting and where the emperor was performing for a selected audience. And it was the master of the gladiators Narcissus, Emperor’s personal trainer, who murdered Commodus in 192 in the bathroom, still visible today along with other huge rooms, with  still intact walls and a breathtaking view, a green landscape with streams, slopes and plenty of water carried up by the two ancient aqueducts Claudius and Anio Novus.

Closed on Mondays and on national holiday days.
