Balthus, Fragonard or Berlioz stayed there. Up until now, little has been said about the Villa Medici, but the veil is lifting. The Villa, which houses the French Academy in Rome founded 350 years ago, reveals its history alongside that of its residents.

Our guides are art historians, restorers, current and former residents, and directors and curators. The documentary takes a unique plunge into the intimate history of the place that is admired by many and criticized by some, but considered universally to be a “Dolce Villa”.
