As a protagonist of the culture of her time, Plautilla appears alongside figures such as Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Pietro da Cortona and wins the trust of well-known clients. As an architect, she realised a single work, a villa on the Gianicolo, which, like a ship stranded on the hills, became known as the Villa del Vascello.
