The beautiful Italian villa that served as the location for Luca Guadignano’s Oscar-nominated 2017 film Call Me by Your Name has gone on the market. Fans of the film can find the villa on Idealista for €1.7 million.
“I’ve known about this house for many years; I even dreamed of buying it,” Guadagnino told Architectural Digest . “Once I realized I couldn’t afford it, and didn’t really want it forf my life, I knew where I was going to set the action of the film – this place with faded, aristocratic charm that a professor and his wife might have inherited but can’t quite keep up.”
The Villa Albergoni is located in Moscazzano, a small town of less than 1000 people, about an hour from Milan.
The house has a total surface area of 1400 m2 and is situated on a plot of approximately 20 000 m2, most of which is beautifully landscaped garden. It has 14 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, traditional antique furniture and decorations such as the carved entrance door and the beautiful frescoed ceiling in the hall, painted by Aurelio Busso, a pupil of Raffaello Sanzioi.
Those who, like the characters in the film, want to spend a summer in the villa will be disappointed, as the house is not for rent but for sale and is a great buy for anyone looking to buy property in the Italian countryside. Take a look at these stunning photos of the Call Me by Your Name villa for a glimpse into one of Italy’s greatest ancient palaces.
