We proceed on our visit with our hearts full of joy and our spirits refreshed, down a steep lane which leads us to the Seat of Mercury, winged messenger of the gods, where we find a XVIIIth century bronze copy of “Hermes at rest”, a statue from the school of Lisippo on display at the national museum in Naples.

To one side, as an invitation to pause, in the shade of an oak tree, Mercury’s Seat, with an inscription in English on the parapet erroneously attributed to the writer and poet D.H.Lawrence who found such inspiration here for his works, while we know today that the quotation is from Catullus: “Lost to the world of which I desire no part, I sit alone and speak to my heart, satisfied with my little corner of the world, content to feel no more sadness for death.”
