TRANSCRIPTION

Country Life Illustrated. [ May 18th, 1901.

Old villas surrounding so many Italian cities are a distinct and often pathetic feature in the social and artistic life of that delightful but degenerate country. The variety and nobility of their architecture and the rank magnificence of the sub-tropical vegetation of their gardens render them particularly attractive; and, in a sense, the more ruinous they are, the more beautiful....
