A historic villa in Grottaferrata adorned with marvelous decorations, it was erected in 1580 by Cardinal Antonio Carafa on an existing Roman villa, and was later embellished by pontiffs and baronial families, including the Odescalchi Grazioli family who gave it its name. During World War II, it served as a shelter for evacuees, and entered a period of long neglect, only to be restored from 1987 onward and brought to new life.

Known for its frescoes-executed by great painters such as Antonio Carracci, nephew of the famous Annibale, and Giovanni Paolo Pannini-its centuries-old park, library, and breathtaking views of Rome, today it has many souls: luxury hotel, restaurant, conference center, and event venue.
