Villa Votalarca - Spoleto

The villa is now housed in an urban context that is greatly diminished, due to the space occupied by Via delle Lettere in Via Flaminia old, in one of Spoleto's most trafficked areas, but at the time of construction it was found In a pleasant suburban environment, with the only company of the most famous Villa Redenta and an agricultural cottage.
Built in the 18th century by the Votalarca Spirits family, it is set on a two-storey cubic volume and is covered by a pavilion surmounted by an altar. The main façade is adorned with a simple portal and a balcony. On the back, the façade has a neoclassical style, with Doric skylines and tympanum.
The Via Flaminia faces a multi-step advance until 1800, when the loggia and the two altars were added.
Between the two buildings you admire a beautiful garden.
In 1968, the Spoleto Prefectural Commissioner approved a project that allowed the building invasion in the villa, altering its appearance. Currently the building is occupied by offices and some private homes.
