Frascati. Italy. View through the long dense avenue of clipped ilex trees that leads from the original entrance gate (below) up to the base of Villa Aldobrandini. The Villa Aldobrandini is the largest and most spectacular of the late Renaissance villas built in Frascati. The Villa was designed by Giacomo della Porta and built by Carlo Maderno in 1598-1603 for Cardinal Pietro Aldobrandini who was the nephew of Pope Clemente VII. The villa is still owned by the Aldobrandini family
