Why go see “House of Gucci” when you can experience it?
Although the film has received criticism, the Italian villa featured in the film is now available for rent on Airbnb.
While staying at the estate adjacent to Lake Como, you can live luxuriously in your finest Gucci while enjoying spectacular views and the grandeur of ’90s Italian opulence.
The residence, known as Villa Balbiano, was described in the film as the home of Patriarch Aldo Gucci, played by Al Pacino. The film also stars Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani and Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci.
In fact, Villa Balbiano dates from the end of the 16th century. Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini, who presided over the estate in the 18th century, hosted members of the Roman Catholic Church and residents of high society for festivals, banquets and dances.
During his tenure as owner of Villa Balbiano, the Cardinal amassed a significant art collection and built new structures, including a church, on additional plots of land he acquired for the property.
The home will be available to a single lucky buyer for a single night on March 30, 2022, for $ 1,125.
Reservations open Monday, December 6 at 12 p.m. EST.
