House of the Week: Italian Villa Favored by the Stars

The Vatican will likely never be for sale, but a home with a small connection to the Pope’s palace is.

This L.A. home was designed to look like an Italian villa, complete with sourced Italian materials and murals painted by the same artist who worked on the Vatican renovation.

After the home construction was finished, Florentine painter Antonio D’Atellis and his three assistants stayed at the home for six months.
