The World’s Most Expensive Home Will Hit the Market for $547 Million

Known as Villa Aurora and located in Rome, the building will go up for auction on January 18, 2022. Though it boasts over 30,000 square feet, what makes the home worthy of its more than half a billion-dollar price tag are the rare paintings inside, including the only ceiling mural painted by the famous Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. In addition to this masterpiece, Villa Aurora contains countless other works of art—sculptures, statues, columns, and ornamentation—according to the listing held by the Italian government.
