Emperor Hadrian is celebrated for his extensive travels, ambitious architectural endeavors, and his efforts to connect the far-flung corners of the vast Roman Empire. Beyond his political achievements, he was a cultured aesthete who also left behind a collection of poems. The legacy of his reign endures in various notable structures, including the Temple of Rome and Venus. Moreover, Hadrian undertook the monumental task of rebuilding the Pantheon, which had suffered from a devastating fire during the rule of his predecessor.

Villa Adriana, Hadrian's personal country retreat located outside Rome, stands as an architectural masterpiece that epitomizes the opulence and elegance of the Roman world. Spanning an impressive expanse of seven square miles, it was more than just a villa; it resembled a splendid garden city. Its magnificent features included baths, libraries, sculpture gardens, theaters, alfresco dining halls, pavilions, and private suites. Remarkably, portions of this grand estate have endured through the ages, offering glimpses into the extraordinary lifestyle of the time. Recognized for its historical significance, Villa Adriana was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999.

Hadrian's tomb, known today as Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, served as the final resting place for subsequent emperors and underwent conversion into a fortress during the 5th century. This iconic structure stands as a testament to the rich history of Rome and its enduring architectural legacy.

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