Pedro José Márquez Durán settled in Rome with his Jesuit brothers because of the expulsion ordered by Carlos III. There, he dedicated to the study of architectonic and esthetics theory. To the end of the 18th century, the Spanish ambassador in Italy, José Nicolás de Azara, made an expedition to Tivoli at the ruins of the well known Villa di Mecenate. Silvestre Pérez and Evaristo del Castillo, pensioners of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid, took part of it and the mexican Jesuit Pedro José Márquez wrote a dissertation to defend the name of the place.
