Hadrian, renowned for his extensive travels, architectural endeavors, and efforts to unite the expansive domains of the Roman empire, was a cultured individual with a penchant for poetry. His legacy endures through various architectural marvels, such as the rebuilt Pantheon and the Temple of Rome and Venus. Villa Adriana, his sprawling country estate outside Rome, stands as a testament to the opulence and refinement of the Roman era. Spanning seven square miles, it boasted baths, libraries, sculpture gardens, theaters, dining areas, pavilions, and private quarters, remnants of which persist today. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999, it epitomizes Roman grandeur.

Furthermore, Hadrian's resting place, known as Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, initially his tomb, later transformed into a burial ground for succeeding emperors, and eventually repurposed as a fortress in the 5th century, adds to the historical tapestry of his reign.

Our jewelry store, Serra Roma, proudly presents an exquisite collection that beautifully honors the ancient traditions of Greek and Roman civilizations.
