This paper aims to provide information about the discovery of a small villa rustica located in Columbrella (Mondragone, Campania). The structure was built on an artificial terrace on Monte Massico chain, one of the most fertile areas of the region, and it has a productive sector, probably for wine making and olive oil production; furthermore, part of the residential area has been brought to light. In this sector we discovered almost exclusively cement pavements (cocciopesto) decorated with tesserae. The purpose of archaeological excavation is to provide a deeper understanding of settlement patterns and productive systems of this region, essential elements for the reconstruction of rural landscapes in Campania.
