07) The Roman villa of Ossaia

 
This villa, located in Ossaia-La Tufa, is an outstanding example of a late Republican-Imperial villa covering an overall area of over 3200 sq.feet and divided into three different areas separated by an intermediate terrace. The complex was inhabited in three different successive stages. The first stage may be dated back to between 50 B.C. and the first half of the 1st century A.C. The second building stage may be dated back to between 80-100 A.C and the 3rd century A.C. whereas the third stage documents a resumption of building activities between the age of the Tetrarchy and the Constantinian period and the first half of the 5th century A.C.
