This video presents a tour of the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California by Prof. Bernard Frischer. Frischer explains how the Romans designed and used villas; and he relates the Getty Villa in California to its architectural model in Italy, the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum on the Bay of Naples. Made in 1985, the video shows the Getty Villa the way it appeared before it was modified from 1996 to 2006 by the architectural team of Machado and Silvetti.
