Why go see “House of Gucci” when you can live it?
During your stay at the Lake Como-adjacent estate, you can live lavishly in your Gucci finest while enjoying spectacular views and the grandeur of ’90s Italian opulence.
The residence, known as Villa Balbiano, was depicted in the film as the home of patriarch Aldo Gucci, played by Al Pacino. The movie also stars Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani and Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci.
In reality, Villa Balbiano dates to the late 16th century. Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini, who presided over the estate in the 18th century, famously hosted members of the Roman Catholic Church and high society denizens for festivals, banquets and dances.
During his tenure as Villa Balbiano’s owner, the Cardinal amassed a large art collection and built new structures, including a church, on additional parcels of land he acquired for the property.
