Masterpieces of the hall

The hall

The villa, built on the right side of the ancient Via Latina, in its heyday belonged to Quinto Servilio Pudente, a very rich brick manufacturer attached to the imperial court. His commercial activity, already attested in 123 A.D., continued throughout the second half of the reign of Emperor Hadrian (117 - 138 A.D.) 

The bricks used for the construction of Villa Adriana in Tivoli came from its workshops.
