Itinerary B
Piazza Armerina

[4] reflected voices

As we approach the majestic building, of which monumental remains can still be seen, we get the impression, even today, of hearing the voices of the guards who watched over the entrance and the sound of the hooves of the horses that entered the villa in the retinue of the dominus, identifiable in the frescoes on the eastern wall that encloses the square. From the niches above the two rectangular fountains, which are now only attached to the piers and Ionic columns, we can still hear the constant sound of the water flowing into the basins and animating, with its reflection, the plant shoots inhabited by birds that decorate the interior.
