Another series of restorations was later executed after World War II to repair damage caused by bombs dropped on the complex during the last world war.

VILLA ADRIANA: Built between 118 d.c. and 138 d.c. by Emperor Hadrian, Villa Adriana is located at Tivoli (ancient Tibur); and is the most important and complex villa remaining of Roman antiquity, more extensive than Pompei. The state bought the area from the family Braschi in 1870 who was at that time the major owner of the lands.
