The beautiful Italian villa seen in Call Me By Your Name—the very place where young Elio discovered himself and his sexuality—is on the market.
Director Luca Guadagnino used the picturesque property in Lombardy, Italy as the home of Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet) and his parents in the film, and now it’s going for $2.7 million.
According to the listing (“Una Residenza da Oscar - Villa Storica del XVI secolo”), the home has 14 bedrooms and seven baths. More than enough space to do some masturbatory peach experimentation. IndieWire reports:
Unfortunately, you may have some competition from Guadagnino himself. The director told Architectural Digest last November that he knew about the home long before he started filming in it and always dreamed of buying it for himself. The director completely gutted the house and redecorated it with 1980s period detail before production on the movie began. Even if Guadagnino doesn’t buy the home, a part of him will aways own it.
“I feel like I’ll own that house forever,” the director told A.D.
Not if we get to it first. The library alone is enough to consider a career shift that might help pay for it.
