I do like Italy. “Why not have a little summer place here?” I wondered. So Luca and Gloria and I headed off to Veneria Reale to check out the real estate. Turns out there is a nice little place there that was a summer residence for the Savoy family for centuries. Nice folks but apparently they left the place in ruins and the EU spent 150,000,000 Euros fixing it up in the late 1990’s. (Were there not some hungry people in the world that could have used that money?)
We we had a look around. It would need furnishing. There are lots of IKEA stores in Italy so that would likely not be a problem.
What do you think? Subject to a home inspection and me arranging financing….
