Via di S. Filippo Martire 6 - Parioli

Eighteenth century, formerly part of Villa Ada

Formerly Villa della Sacra Famiglia (Holy Family Villa) and later Villa S. Filippo (Villa of St. Philip)

It was restored in the years 1925/30 and took the name of Villa Polissena to be the residence of PRINCESS MAFALDA OF SAVOY, second daughter of King Vittorio Emanuele III, and wife of Philip of Hesse Kassel who designed the garden

Here Mafalda of Savoy was arrested by the Nazis on September 1943 and deported to the concentration camp of Buchenwald, where she died
