Each room is characterized by an evocative name and ad hoc designed furnishings, all of which evoke a dreamlike atmosphere and all are enriched by marble wall, but certainly the most special is the gardener's shed Villa, whose ceiling is studded with LED lights, like the night sky of one of Rome's most romantic hills, the Aventino.
