A 17th-century Italian villa that housed royalty is now up for auction.

And it’s put up for auction without reservation, which means the property will be sold, regardless of the price.

Known as Villa Litta Carini and located 45 minutes from Milan, the highest bidder will become the new owner of the historic 16 bedroom, 16 bathroom estate.

The sale includes a large triple-height ballroom that can accommodate up to 160 people.
Designed by the famous architect Giovanni Ruggeri, the classic features of the property include extraordinary frescoes, fireplaces and chandeliers from the 17th century.

There’s also a historic silk-spinning room, which stretches 131 feet long and has cathedral ceilings.

Exterior features include terraced gardens with mosaics, several courtyards, and countryside views.

The property consists of 16 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms.

Outside the main house is a private chapel, ice house, separate museum and stables.

“From the expansive triple-height ballroom on the grand ‘piano nobile’ to opulent private apartments, every inch of this spectacular property pays homage to its proud historical roots,” Agent Concierge Auctions told JamPress.

“Walking around this majestic country villa will leave you with the inevitable feeling that you are part of a period drama.”

The villa hosted influential guests such as King Umberto I of Italy, who reigned from January 9, 1878 until his assassination on July 29, 1900, and Giacomo Puccini, an Italian opera composer.

Originally owned by Count Antonio Cavazzi della Somaglia until his death in 1688, his great-grandson, Paolo Dati, inherited the estate.

Dati enlarged the villa by adding a wing and elevating it to one of Italy’s most coveted vacation destinations in the 18th century, according to Jam Press.

The Dati Somalia family sold the house in 1824, but it continued to be a popular getaway destination until around 1887.

Over the next century the property was left derelict until the current owners arrived in 1970 and restored much of it.

The Villa is advertised as a possible place for commercial use, including a hotel, spa or restaurant.

The auctions open on November 11 at 2:00 p.m. GMT, and since there is no reserve, they will be sold to the highest bidder via Italy Sotheby’s International Realty and Concierge Auctions.
