The domus Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina, in Sicily, is the supreme example of late-imperial Roman luxury villa and symbolizes the use of the territory by the Romans as the center of the great property on which the rural economy was based of the Western Empire. The Villa del Casale is one of the most luxurious of its kind and is famous for the richness and quality of its mosaics (4th century AD), which are recognized as the most beautiful in situ Roman mosaics. This mosaic treasure testifies the life habits of the ruling Roman class and shows the mutual influences between cultures and exchanges in the ancient Mediterranean - between the Roman world and the North African area. The villa is developed in 48 rooms (about 3500 square meters of surface) covered with mosaics in perfect condition, perhaps executed by African masters, which allow you to retrace the history of the greatest among the Empires, with scenes of everyday life, depictions of heroes and deities, hunting and games scenes.
