Villa Aldrovandi Mazzacorati is a 17th-century historic building located just outside Bologna's city centre.

After being acquired by Annibale Marescotti, the villa with garden came into the possession of the Aldrovandi family towards the end of the 1600s and underwent multiple restoration projects. In the late 1700s, the villa became the property of the Marquises Mazzacorati. The definitive Neoclassical appearance of the villa designed by Francesco Tadolini dates back to the same period.

The villa is known for its theatre, inaugurated in 1763, and the only surviving example of a suburban private theatre in the Bologna area. Inside the villa we also find the “Mario Massacesi” Historical Museum of Toy Soldiers (Museo Storico del Soldatino) as well as the Regional Health Service’s Outpatient Clinic.
