Villa Rosebery: a summer mansion of the President of the Italian Republic

Villa Rosebery is a summer residence of the Italian President in Naples.

The villa is located in a luxurious quarter of Posillipo. The name of the residence derives from its last private owner, Lord Rosebery, the eminent British politician and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, in office between 1894-95. He purchased the villa in 1897 from the businessman Gustavo Delahante. The edifice had been constructed in the early 19th century and had changed owners several times. Most of them were foreigners, which proves a developing interest of foreigners, especially English, towards acquisition of estates in this area of the city. The goal of the Lord Rosebery was to enjoy his withdrawal from political life and dedicate himself to historic-literary studies.
