Mura Aureliane, Roma Aurelian Walls , Rome

The Aurelian Walls are a line of city walls built between 271 AD and 275 AD in Rome, Italy, during the reign of the Roman Emperors Aurelian and Probus. They superseded the earlier Servian Wall built during the 4th century BC.

The walls enclosed all the seven hills of Rome plus the Campus Martius and, on the right bank of the Tiber, the Trastevere district. The river banks within the city limits appear to have been left unfortified, although they were fortified along the Campus Martius. The size of the entire enclosed area is 1,400 hectares (3,500 acres).
The full circuit ran for 19 kilometres (12 mi) surrounding an area of 13.7 square kilometres (5.3 sq mi). The walls were constructed in brick-faced concrete, 3.5 metres (11 ft) thick and 8 metres (26 ft) high, with a square tower every 100 Roman feet (29.6 metres (97 ft)).

In the 4th century, remodelling doubled the height of the walls to 16 metres (52 ft). By 500 AD, the circuit possessed 383 towers, 7,020 crenellations, 18 main gates, 5 postern gates, 116 latrines, and 2,066 large external windows.
The Aurelian Walls continued as a significant military defense for the city of Rome until September 20, 1870, when the Bersaglieri of the Kingdom of Italy breached the wall near the Porta Pia and captured Rome. The walls also defined the boundary of the city of Rome up until the 19th century, with the built-up area being confined within the walled area.

The Aurelian Walls remain remarkably well-preserved today, largely the result of their constant use as Rome's primary fortification until the 19th century. The Museo delle Mura near the Porta San Sebastiano offers information on the walls' construction and how the defenses operated. The best-preserved sections of the walls are found from the Muro Torto (Villa Borghese) to Corso d'Italia to Castro Pretorio; from Porta San Giovanni to Porta Ardeatina; from Porta Ostiense to the Tiber; and around Porta San Pancrazio.

All the town's whole area that lies inside the Aurelian Walls (1,400 hectares) can actually be identified as the Historic Centre of Rome , World Heritage Site.

Villa Imperiale , Pesaro - Marche

The Villa Imperiale of Pesaro is a suburban palatial house outside of Pesaro, built and decorated by artists of the late-Renaissance or Mannerist period. It is now a private residence but the frescoed rooms and elaborate gardens are available for touring.

A castle existed at the site, supposedly built starting in 1452 by Alessandro Sforza when visited by Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III. Construction continued until 1469.

After various disputes, in 1521 Pesaro was conquered by Francesco Maria I Della Rovere. He commissioned the painter and architect Girolamo Genga to transform (1523-1538) the castle into an elegant Villa di Delizia. His wife, Eleonora Gonzaga later commissioned further refurbishment by Pietro Bembo, including completing the cortile d’onore (courtyard of honor).

The property includes terraced and intricate Renaissance style gardens

The interior frescoes employed a number of major Mannerist painters including Dosso and Battista Dossi; Camillo Mantovano; Raffaellino del Colle; Bronzino; and Francesco Menzocchi. Topics include the Labors of Hercules, Story of the Rovere family, Hall of Calumny, and caryatids, amorini, and other decorations.

In 1635, the villa became part of the Medici with the marriage of Ferdinando II with Vittoria della Rovere.

Falling into disrepair, in 1763, the custody of the villa went to the Camera Apostolica of the Catholic church. In 1777 it was ceded by Pope Pius VI to Prince Orazio Albani, brother of the former pope Pope Clement XI, and father of cardinal Alessandro Albani. In the 19th-century, many of the frescoes were restored by Giuseppe Gennari. Much of this work was removed during the restorations in the 1970s.
