Mary Berry in Villa Aldobrandini, Frascati - 4 May, 1784

from Diary of Mary Berry, 4 May 1784, page 115:

Villa Aldobrandini, fine situation. At the back of the house is a circular facade of building, in which there are fountains and Gioco d’Acqua. A room, on one side, called the ladies’ bath, with a trumpery representation of Parnassus at the end of it; a sort of rock, on which are little figures of the Muses and Apollo, with the pipes of an organ in their mouths, which plays by the water.
