Villa Torlonia, a lavish 19th century villa in Rome, was the residence of former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini from 1925 through 1943. Villa Torlonia is part of a large complex that includes a reproduction of a frescoed Etruscan tomb, a theater, extensive gardens, and Casina della Civette
, the owl's bungalow, resembling a Swiss chalet.
The grounds and villa now belong to the city of Rome and are open to the public. See Villa Torlonia Visiting Information for museum ticket information, hours, and location.
