This mansion, called the Villa Rufulo, has been mentioned by Boccacio in the Decameron, Richard Wagner also found his inspiration for the stage set of his opera Parsifal here.
These days Ravello is especially famous for it's music festivals which take place there every summer. This tradition was started by Wagner himself in 1953.
