Property description

Beautiful country house and cottages in secluded gardens on doorstep of Rome. Excellent public transport from outside the garden gate. Car is not necessary. Just 9 kilometres or 30 Min. by bus/ metro, 20 minutes by car, from historic center of Rome. We offer added car minibus service at reasonable rates. WI-FI. Swimming pool. barbecue area.

The property is divided in four self-catering residences: West wing (of main villa), Farina Cottage, Mezzaluna Cottage (not advertised: sleeps 4-6) and East Wing Suite. All are independent with independent entrances. Eastwest Wing means that East Wing Suite and West Wing are connected into one large independent unit. The park is large and offers plenty of privacy to all.

The houses are surrounded by secular pines and cypresses . They are comfortably and elegantly furnished with some antiques and paintings by past masters and modern artists working with us in our ground breaking Storygardenz project. All the units are self-catering but delicious meals and half board are provided to order under the main veranda. We have some great wines from our local wine selector’s club.

This estate belongs to old aristocratic families (Italian and English), protagonists and accessories of some decisive historic European events (Augustus, Constantine, the end of Roman Empire, the Great Lost Treasure of Jerusalem). These, and other contiguous events, are narrated in a book – but also witnessed as art, artefacts and archaeology in the garden - as part of the Storygardenz project, now funded by the EU (Seeing Stories). In short, a significant part of your entertainment and education in coming to Rome is right here, outside the doors and windows of the houses of this (story) garden.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1870

About the owner: Bernard Anson Silj, (a.k.a. DADO), born in Rome (Italy) 1948, of British father and Italian mother, educated at Harrow and Trinity College. His formative years between Britain and Italy and subsequent time as a young man, in India and Tibet, fuelled his lifelong fascination in fact and fiction, reality and nonsense (or Zen) and the workings of the mind. Between 1980-1990 successfully runs and manages his own multi-national aircraft interior design company (Nortech Ltd. London, Rome, Oslo, Seattle). In 1989, founds Laboratorio dell’Umanesimo in Rome, running residential workshops on humanistic, scientific and transpersonal subjects, with eminent thinkers. 1998 founds Belvedere Italia internet based cultural tourism in Italy. 2007 founds the European Storygardenz project, promoted by the Italian Ministry of Culture. 2012 initiates European Community storytelling project 'Seeing Stories', funded by the EU, with Scottish Storytelling Center and 4 European countries. From the beginning RVS property in Rome is developed as pilot storygardenz. In 2012 is cultural director and content curator/creator for multinational company marketing Italian luxury in the world. Here, begins to realize importance of storytelling for marketing. In the same year begins experimenting with map making and application to Google Maps (Mapzofimagination). Storyteller, lecturer and speaker in Europe and USA, author of several works including “Pedagogia e Carisma nella globalizzazione” for Sapienza University and “Carmen Via, A journey in the songlines of Italy” (Semar Press, the Hague). His latest work “The Garden of Crossed Destinies” written specifically for RVS is about to be published. In 2011 participates, as artist, in exhibition at MLAC museum Sapienza University. In 2010 interprets himself in US film directed by David Rich “Going DADO”. Is presently active in researching and writing many geo-located tales for the expanding Storygardenz project in Italy and in Europe.

Why the Owner Chose Municipio XV, Rome, Italy:
This property was part of a huge estate - 14,000 hectares purchased by Bernard's grandfather in 1885. It took 3 days to visit all the estate by car and contained some extraordinary archaeologiical remains and historical features. The estate is much smaller now and many of these features are now concentrated at RVS, which in the early 20th century grew to become the cultural hub of the estate, mainly by the presence of a community of eminent artists (the Convivium Romanum). Bernard has continued the tradition at RVA with contemporary artists but extended mostly into his preferred domain of history, narrative and storytelling.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This property, combines the proximity of the eternal city with a haven best suited for reunions and family groups. Storygardenz is a project developed as a search of lost time (quality time) to encourage conversation, listening and the lost art of “doing nothing” profitably - in the sense of peerless human activity originating in inertia. As backdrop to all this delightful sloth and conviviality is Storygardenz proper: an innovative mix of stories, neuro-science and art, combined playfully as a quest and historical riddle for entertainment, learning, mental expansion and improved communication skills. The stories told and illustrated in this park include: Fall of the House of Hypnos (prehistory and myth), Etruscan Song of Circular Time (legend and history), Augustus and the White hens (history and legend), The tomb of Tacitus (history), The Donation of Constantine (history), Roland, Charlemagne and Abbul Abbuz (legend and history), The Great Lost Treasure of Jerusalem (legend and history), Three Languages Grimm (fairy tale), DA DA-NEO-DA-DA (contemporary art).
