Info about Villa d’Este

Villa d’Este in Tivoli, was commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito d’Este son of Alfonso I and Lucrezia Borgia (Ferrara 1509 – Rome 1572), on a site formerly home to a Roman villa.

The history of the construction of Villa d’Este is linked to the events of its first owner, Pope Julius III del Monte, who wanted to thank Cardinal d’Este for the essential contribution made in 1550 to his election to the papal throne, appointing him governor for life. of Tivoli and its territory..

The cardinal arrived in Tivoli on September 9 and made a triumphal entry there, discovering however that he should have lived in an old and uncomfortable convent annexed to the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, built centuries earlier by the Benedictines, now kept by the Franciscans and partially adapted to governor’s residence.
