Abstract

The first unit of Villa Mondragone was built in the last quarter of the sixteenth century and was partially founded on the ruins of an ancient Roman Villa, attributed to the consuls Quintili, dating back to the first century A. D. The wall-system of this factory didn't coincide with the existing structures because it was preferred to rotate it, in order to define an axiality with the rests of another wide basis villae, situated downstream. Repeated archeological excavations made at Villa Mondragone during last centuries brought to light many old walls that, however, have never been completely revealed for a global analysis. The laser scanning survey recently started on indoor archeological ruins emerged in the recent past, confirm the hypothesis by Felice Grossi Gondi at the beginning of the twentieth century, related to the choices about the ancient planning; furthermore, they allow to upgrade the existing planimetries, giving more information for a clearer knowledge of the monument.
