Count the Many Frescoes in This Opulent Tuscan Palace

Lily di Costanzo
1 November 2013


Nestled away in Capannori, Italy, sits this delightfully pink, ridiculously lavish villa—dating back to the second half of the 16th century and just waiting for the right art- and history-obsessed buyer to come along. Once owned by a family of famed European silk traders, the eight-bedroom, 22,604-square-foot chateau comes with a rich history of renovations throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as what must have been some diligent modern-day upkeep to keep the tile-floored, heavily frescoed mansion, über-opulent interiors looking as it was originally intended to look (like the Sistine Chapel, perhaps?). Only the basement remains unfinished—offering a crumbling reminder the work that came before. Though the listing calls for "price upon request"—which in Italian translates to molto, molto expensive—but the property also includes stables, a farmhouse, and grottoed gardens, plus an additional 11 acres of surrounding land. Do have a look:
