Sala della Piccola Caccia

Highly recommended
It was in this room in the Villa Romana del Casale that meals were taken in winter. Five paintings illustrate the significant moments of a hunt, with, in the centre, a sacrifice to Diana and an outdoor meal. The precision of the gestures, the expressiveness of the characters and the variety of the elements portrayed make this mosaic extremely lively and amusing to examine in detail.
