Madonna House Hunting in Verona

29 September 2011 - Italy Magazine

Just weeks after making disparaging remarks about Italy's politicians, Madonna is reportedly contemplating a move to Verona.

The material girl would be in good company if she closes a deal on the 10 million euros flat she is supposedly interested in. Leonardo di Caprio has a house in Verona's Piazza Bra', and the Jolie-Pitts are just down the road in Valpolicella. Rounding out the list of glamorous neighbors, Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame is also house hunting.

The apartment that caught Madonna's eye is a two story, 500-square-meter penthouse on Verona's Piazza delle Erbe. The urban mansion boasts six bedrooms, five bathrooms and a loft.

Verona mayor Flavio Tosi is pleased to hear the rumors about Madonna moving to town. "If they are confirmed, we will be happy. It would be a further confirmation of the strength and importance of the city image abroad."
