This marvelous panoramic design inspired by seeing Casa di Livia frescos , in Palazzo Massimo in the National Museum in Rome .
The frescoes of the underground nymphaeum of the villa of Livia are a group of wall paintings made in
fresco and found in the underground nymphaeum of Livia’s villa in Prima Porta, Rome, in 1863.
Of great importance both for the completeness and for the quality of the execution, they are the most
ancient Roman garden paintings ever, as they can be dated to 40-20 BC.
The painting of illusionistic gardens, well documented in Roman art, perhaps derived from oriental models (examples of lower quality are found in some tombs in the necropolis of Alexandria).
The large underground hall, measuring 5.90 x 11.70 meters, was built for Livia Drusilla, the third wife
of Emperor Augustus. We do not know the ancient use of the room, which is accessed by a descending
staircase. On the walls only the access door opens and there are no windows: it may be, however,
that there was a skylight in the barrel vault. Perhaps here there was a cool place to shelter during
the summer heat; some geometric stalactites that crown the upper part of the wall must have perhaps given the impression of a cave
a few ideas to imagine this amazing decoration in our days and forever
For over forty years San Patrignano has been saving lives of young people through artistic craftsmanship, some of them have discovered to be "Masters of Art". The profound vitality of the artisan sectors is testified by new people who have transformed their experience in San Patrignano as a way to save lives and sharing their personal history allowing others to understand their potential and discover their new passions. At San Patrignano everything is made by hand, new generations have been able to learn traditional techniques and rethink them in new ways; moving towards the future, using researching, designs and painting with the latest technologies. The collaboration between Arjumand and San Patrignano has begun from the founder Idarica Gazzoni to enrich the workshops with new tools and training. Then, the first panoramic decor came to life sharing one's imaginary world; made up of travels, love of paintings and craftsmanships. It's the first step of a journey that considers man into the center of important values that will lead us to the exploration of creativity and of new scenarios. Thanks to the decorative and artistic mastery of workshops, besides new collection that will be outlined, we also have had the opportunity to structure others projects very delicately, considering the complexity of the work and the skills necessary to develop it. This collaboration not only helps the community of San Patrignano, but above all, Arjumand wants to enhance the value of manual work and the Italian craftsmanship of the new generations to come.
