Villa Jovis in Capri is the most important Roman villa of the island Capri. What we know today is the result of many excavations, spoliations and destructions. Before the work of Amedeo Maiuri in the 30s of 20th century, Giuseppe Feola, mayor of Capri, undertook the most extensive excavation of the Villa. Throughout the study of the archival documents it is now possible to know the different phases of what is called the first royal excavation, carried out between 1824 and 1828.
