The article addresses specific decorative motives of the Villa Star (1555 -1558) in the Liboc suburb of Prague, an Italianate villa built together with the Royal Summerhouse known under the name of Queen Anne in the garden of the Prague Castle (1537 -1563) to support the imperial candidature of the Bohemian and Hungarian King, Ferdinand I Habsburg. From 1556 to1560 the ceilings of ground floor were provided with rich stucco decoration, after the fashion of the Caesar Augustus - motives from Vergilius' Aeneid - praising Ferdinand I as an eirenical emperor, bringing a new Golden Age to the world.
