The real 16th-century estate in the film, Call Me By Your Name is located in Italy’s Lombardy region. In the film, the property serves as the home of Elio Perlman (Timothee Chalamet) and his family, and is the setting for the teenager’s tryst with his father’s research assistant, Oliver (Armie Hammer).
The gorgeous Italian villa is currently for sale for $2.15 million, listed with Milan-based real estate firm House&Loft.
Designer – Visconti di Modrone, covered much of the furniture in Indian and Southeast Asian cotton fabrics (some from her own personal collection, and some from friends’ families whom she felt bore a resemblance to the Perlmans), including a cozy, blue and white–patterned example covering the sofa on which Elio and his parents curl up in a tangle of legs and arms for a reading one night.
On the walls hang a mix of maps from the famous Stamperia Perini print store in Verona and 18th-century Japanese paintings from an antiques store in Milan called Piva.
Visconti di Modrone kept the home’s original dusty-rose sofa, “It gives the sensation of coziness and shabby chic that is right for the library — you feel that people stood and worked there.” She layered the brocade with antique cameos of Lombardian kings and filled the shelves with flea-market finds and books.
The table where the Perlmans enjoy breakfast outside is covered in a plastic checkered tablecloth to which Visconti di Modrone added patches and discoloration to make it look worn (the plates and saucers she sourced, again, from friends so they would have a lived-in feel).
“It’s a house that accepts the passage of time, that accepts what you do. It’s all fine, and it’s welcoming, and it’s warm,” says writer André Aciman. “You can’t get away from that feeling of warmth that this family exudes, and it’s in the house.”
