Villa Rosbery

History

The villa was built as a royal residence and is one of the three official residences of the President of the Italian Republic and for this reason can not be visited, except in some periods of the year. The villa owes its origin to the initiative of the Austrian officer Joseph von Thurn, who from 1801 bought some on Cape Posillipo to erect a country residence surrounded by a garden, as well as large orchards and vineyards. The property was acquired in 1857 by Louis of Bourbon, and only in 1897 by Lord Rosebery, a British statesman who had been Chief of Cabinet from 1894 to 1895. Retired to private life, Lord Rosebery made the villa an oasis of tranquility accessible only to selected friends and scholars, increasing his collection of paintings and prints purchased from Neapolitan antiques. In 1909, Lord Rosebery decided to cede the property to the British government.

Villa Rosebery thus became a representation and resort for British ambassadors in Italy, until 1932
