Italian style can be summed up as understated timeless luxury. Italians make glamour look effortless. They can put a crisp white shirt and jacket with a pair of brand name jeans, and look like a movie star.

Italian designers, artists, craftspeople and furniture makers have a passion for what they do.
We’ve all heard the stories, gorgeous Italian properties for one euro, but is it true? Well, it is for this property in Emilia-Romagna, about an hour’s drive from Bologna. Of course there are strings attached. About 1.5 million strings, in fact. But it still represents an awesome opportunity to create anything from a stately home to a hotel or apartment complex, all to your own personal taste. And all for the price of an average family home in London.
