Piazza Armerina, Villa romana del Casale

and the wonderful mosaic.

The Villa Romana del Casale is a late Roman villa whose ruins are located near Piazza Armerina in Sicily. The mosaics, with such a unique, richness and a variety, make the Villa Romana del Casale a priceless gem in the history of art. Indeed since 1997 is part of UNESCO World Heritage Site.??Many of the halls of residence have figured in the floor mosaic colored tiles. The stylistic differences between the mosaics are very evident. This, however, does not necessarily indicate a performance in different times, but probably different workers, which mediate Syriac heritage and trends using various Alexandrian "pattern book".

Several archaeologists assume that the villa belonged at high-ranking personalities of the hierarchy of the Roman Empire (a Consul), while others argue that the villa belonged to the Emperor M. Valerius Maximus, said Victor Herculeos.
