The REAL Gucci House! Inside the sumptuous Italian palace featured in the film
Lies, deception, murder and a glamorous 16th century palace – Gucci House really has it all!
And now you have the chance to experience it firsthand (except, hopefully, all the hitman stuff).
After serving as a filming location for trendy family patriarch Aldo Gucci (played by Al Pacino), the lavish Villa Balbiano had landed on Airbnb for a special one-night-only booking.
One of the largest private villas on Lake Como, the house is a testament to Italian opulence, outfitted with pristine antique art and furnishings, 17th-century frescoes, and lavish accents worthy of the royalty of the fashion.
It was built at the end of the 16th century by the famous Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio and throughout its history has been used as a gathering place for international celebrities, setting the stage for infamous banquets, balls and festivals. of the society. If these walls could talk …
In addition to a private dock and extensive manicured gardens, the house has six luxurious suites designed by renowned interior designer Jacques Garcia. And, much like Lady Gaga’s accent in the movie, nothing about the place is subtle.
If you fancy an Italian getaway and have an extra $ 1,125 to spend, the villa may be yours – for one night. The reservation opens on Monday, December 6, but you can take a peek inside the literal house of Gucci to come.
