Villa Ponam – Rieti

Description

The Villa, built by the Ponam Family at the beginning of the 18th century, is located near San Benedetto hamlet (City of Rieti), that is 2 km from the historic center. It is one of the finest examples of late-Baroque private architecture in Lazio.
The building façade has an articulated exedra toward the valley of  Rieti; Two centuries-old rows of cypresses frame the beautiful facade with elliptical oculi that illuminate the entrance halls at the ground floor and the attic rooms.

Even the back façade – more simple and linear – is a fine workmanship, with a higher central body; still visible are the remains of the old perimeter wall and the gate.
The main hall at the first floor is adorned with stuccoes depicting allegorical figures and cherubs supporting wreaths.
