The Villa di Castello is one of the Medici villas near Florence, Tuscany, central Italy. Its ideal design appears in a lunette painted by Giusto Utens in 1599. The property was purchased by Lorenzo de'Medici in 1477 on the site of an existing building which he had rebuilt. In the villa he housed Sandro Botticelli's Renaissance masterpieces The Birth of Venus (Botticelli) and Primavera (painting).
