The envy-inducing villa of Oscar-nominated film Call Me By Your Name has come on the market in Moscazzano with a listing price that seems (kind of) reasonable, especially for a home in the Italian countryside—now with Hollywood pedigree.
The story of how director Luca Guadagnino came across the house has become something of a legend, too. Talking to Architectural Digest, he said that he had known about the home for many years, and even dreamed about purchasing it one day, but it was out of his price range. Plus, he already had a 17th-century apartment of his own just outside Milan in Crema. Instead, he decided to make it the summer home of the fictional Perlman family.
Now, the artfully dilapidated 14-room villa can be yours for 1.7 million euro, or about $ 2.1 million. That gets you 1,400 square meters (about 15,000 square feet) of historical architecture, which the listing says dates back to the 1500s, including porticos, a frescoed ceiling and otherwise coffered and vaulted ceilings, carved doors, terrazzo floors, massive fireplaces, and so much more.
The overgrown grounds total 2 hectares, or about 5 acres, and include 2 outbuildings. It’s just the place to live out your summer days in a haze of longing. But if you don’t have $ 2 million to spare, go watch the movie.
