Mussolinis former residence at Villa Torlonia, along the Via Nomentana, is coming to the end of a 4 million facelift. Around 60 specialists in everything from marble to frescos are at work every day at the villa, restoring it to its former glory. The clearest change is the terracotta pediment the triangular gable beneath the sloping roof that has been restored to pristine condition. Inside, the monumental staircase has also been painstakingly rebuilt. Once complete the villa will become a museum and cultural centre, surrounded by a landscaped park containing a theatre and replica laghetto di Fucino. The restoration began a year ago and there are plans to open to the public in March next year.
