Villa Pamphili

Villa Pamphili

Villa Pamphili is a park in Rome and former estate of a noble family (like many Italian parks). The park is divided in two halves, one that is mostly wild and the other with the palace and all the fountains. The palace is used to host visiting dignitaries.

We stayed on the side with all the fountains; there are a lot of fountains. There is also a pond, chapel, and stream. We ran into some wild parrots or “pappagalli”. I was most amused by my discovery of a duck-chicken hybrid. These must have been the result of some abnormally aggressive specimens of ducks or chickens. I assume this because the hybrid was first brought to my attention because of some loud bird rape happening at the water’s edge. These seem like sexually aggressive birds.
