Ennio Morricone’s Roman house for sale for 12 million euros
Morricone spent 30 years living and composing in the historic Roman property.
The former Roman residence of the late Italian composer Ennio Morricone is on sale at Christie’s for 12 million euros, the newspaper reports Corriere della Sera.
The 1000 m² penthouse apartment on Via d’Aracoeli in the ancient heart of Rome offers a direct view of the statue of Marcus Aurelius on the Capitoline Hill.
Morricone, who died in the Italian capital in July 2020, lived in the lavish town center home for 30 years before moving to the southern EUR district in 2017.
The apartment is part of the 16th century Palazzo Muti Bussi, designed by Giacomo Della Porta, the famous architect whose landmark projects included supervising the construction of the nearby Cordonata staircase leading to the Campidoglio, after the death of its designer Michelangelo.
The property, which extends over the third and fourth floors of the building, has three entrances and two parking spaces in the courtyard.
It also has a modern lift and is serviced by a 24-hour concierge.
The residence has 15 bedrooms, several living rooms, two kitchens, eight bathrooms and an office with a view of the Capitol Hill.
It also has three terraces, one of which offers stunning 360 degree views over the rooftops of Rome.
