Villa Altieri was built at the end of the 17th century when Paluzzo Altieri, nephew of Pope Clement X, most probably commissioned architect Giovanni Antonio De Rossi to transform a large rustic farmhouse into a residence. The Province of Rome acquired Villa Altieri in 1975, after a series of changes of ownership of the building, once a women's recluse, then a nunnery and a school.
Restored in 2010, it houses the Institutional Library and Historical Archives of the Metropolitan City of Rome, the Altieri museum area and archaeological collection, the Pio Rajna Study Centre for Literary, Linguistic and Philological Research, with the Dante Library, as well as exhibition spaces.
Villa Altieri is the institutional headquarters of the Metropolitan City of Rome.
