The reform of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage transformed the main Italian museums into autonomous institutions starting from 1 September 2016.
Said reform also involved the sites of Villa Adriana, Villa d’Este and the Sanctuary of Hercules Victor.
Combining the various sites that make up the Institute and bringing them together under the banner of one of the characteristic features of the land on which they stand, namely the beauty and charm of the places that have made Tivoli a tourist destination and a place of leisure since ancient times, has been one of the first needs of the new Management since its establishment.
Mr. Andrea Bruciati was appointed Director following an international public selection process that ended in February 2017.
The new course of action led to a series of important strategic choices:
The creation of the “Villae” brand, which is not just a change of name, but rather a sign of a new cultural identity. In particular, the new logo reflects the characteristics and millenary ties that the sites share with each other and with the territorial, anthropological and cultural substratum on which they stand;
The revival of the relationship with the Tiber river area, also through the rediscovery of the agricultural products of the territory;
The opening of an Exhibition Office;
The extension of the visiting hours.
