dc.descriptionRemains of Villa Damecuta, which is one of twelve Augustan-Tiberian Roman villas on the Island of Capri, Italy. The Roman villa is in ruins today due to the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. and many raids by pirates. The ruins is located a short walk between the Blue Grotto and the municipality of Anacapri. "Damecuta" is derived from "Domus Cuta" (Dark and Hidden House), as Emperor Tiberius preferred small living spaces similar to caves. Augustus was the first Roman emperor and was succeeded by his stepson, Tiberius.
