History
Villa Aurelia, property of the American Academy in Rome, from the time of its construction has assumed various names accompanying changes in ownership: Villa Farnese, Villa Borbone, Villa Giraud, Villa Savorelli, Villa Heyland. 
The Villa was built by Cardinal Girolamo Farnese (1599 – 1668/69) atop the Gianiculum, along the Aurelian walls close to Porta San Pancrazio. The property had belonged to Pope Paolo III as part of the Farnese family vineyards.
20th Century
In 1909, in accordance with Mrs. Heyland's will, the property was bequeathed to the American Academy in Rome. At the same time, the Academy, lead by J. P. Morgan, one of its founders, purchased a large piece of land close to the Porta San Pancrazio with the intention of building new facilities for the institution. Immediately after the Second World War, in 1946 – 1947, the Academy started restoration work on the property, managed by the Academy director, Laurenze Roberts, and by the architect Bruno Zevi.

 

Events
Perched in a dominating position on the crest of the Janiculum Hill, Villa Aurelia, property of the American Academy in Rome since 1909, reopened with a gala inauguration in May 2002 after three years of extensive restoration. With this reopening the Villa continues in its traditional role, hosting cultural events organized by the Academy such as concerts and conferences. The beauty of the 
Villa gardens, the breathtaking view of Rome, and the variety of spaces available 
make Villa Aurelia an ideal location for high-level external events such as receptions, dinners and board meetings, wedding reception party
