From the Villa you managed a farm with vineyards, vegetable gardens, hunting, stables, remnants, pigeon houses in the towers (of which accesses are still visible), a large aviary, an ice reservoir, the wine cave and even the silkworm culture. The rich Borghese collection consists of sculptures, bas-reliefs and ancient mosaics, as well as paintings and sculptures from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century.
