Built by Paul Buonvisi in the second half of the sixteenth century, is shaped like a box topped by a belvedere loggia.
Post longitudinal axis of the garden gives rise to two parks of different sizes.
The villa in the early twentieth century belonged to the Marquis of Lucca Bottini then passed to other owners and was eventually purchased by the region of Tuscany that after the restoration gave the town of Lucca, which reopened to visitors. It is now used as a space of representation of the City and seat of culture.

Waltz, Quadrille, Contry Dances, Marsch and Polka.
