As the main sources for this article, I used the website of Institutum Romanum Finlandiae and the profound presentation we were given by the institute's intendant. If you are interested in all those exciting moments the villa has had during its Finnish reign, I recommend the excellent Finnish book Villa Lante. Suomen Rooman instituutti 1954-2004 (2004).

Ciao, I'm back! I returned from Italy on Saturday night. After hours of travel, it was such a heavenly feeling to arrive in a lush, sleeping allotment garden. A cozy small cottage, blooming apple trees, nightingales and blackbirds keeping their incredible serenades - what could be a better place to relax after a long journey?
During one morning, while having an outdoor breakfast we got a very special guest. A fox! It stood so close we hardly believed our eyes. The poor tramp was looking and sniffing around and then calmly continued its way. I wonder why it was there and did it eventually find what was looking for.
Now I'm back to my own residence, and I just saw I took over 3,500 photos on my trip! I suppose it will take a few days to go through all of them... My time in Italy was very inspiring, and during the summer I'm going to arrange some themed topics and share them with you. I already promised I would tell about Villa Lante!
