Sala Caldaie - Horti Sallustiani

This residential complex, previously owned by Caesar, then by the historian Sallust, and then by his great-nephew, became part of the imperial property in 20 AD, and was developed into three great terraces in what is now the Ludovisi zone.
The remains of the gardens’ rich decorative apparatus is divided among various Italian and foreign museums.
