Hot US Celebs Buy Property in Northern Italy

It wasn't enough to only have one of the sexiest American men alive with a beautiful luxury villa in Italy since 2002. That is George Clooney, who has also been in the news over the last couple of years because of his romantic liason with Italian TV sweetheart Elisabetta Canalis. He bought Villa L'Oleandra in 2002 on Lake Como.

Now there is another sexy duo on the Italian scene--in Northern Italy! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reported to have recently bought a mega villa in the hills of Valpolicella, the region famous for its red wine of the same name. Paying a mere $40,000,000 their new abode includes a park, two swimming pools with waterfalls and jacuzzi tubs, a cinema room and a well-equipped gym. They have supposedly been in Italy for the last 10 months while Jolie has been working on the film, The Tourist in Venice. According to the property firm owner Alexander Proto, "They wanted something more exclusive and in record time to spend the summer vacation in Italy."

So Brad, Angelina and family, any plans to come to Padua soon?

  1. I read an article that said they paid $40 million for the property, which seems more in line given the scope of the property. I wonder what their presence will do for tourism in their area?

  2. Yes, you're right. I forgot to include the last three 0's. Their presence will bring more tourists and soon the local mayor might want to build a new parking lot to accomodate them, if Clooney's example is copied.

  3. I am very familiar with the Valpolicella area. In which town in the hills is the villa located?

  4. According to L'Arena, the name of the property is Villa Costanza and it is located in the town of San Pietro in Cariano.

  5. WOW! This places are awesome! Lovely couples too.
