Laglio, lavori a Villa Oleandra
Clooney e Canalis presto sul lago

13 marzo 2011 Cronaca Commenta

Gallery: La dimora di George e Ely

LAGLIO - Villa Oleandra si rifà il look. George Clooney la vuole sempre più bella ed elegante, sia sul fronte lago che verso terra, senza tralasciare la facciata che volge verso il caratteristico porticciolo, in corrispondenza del quale l'anno scorso sono stati eseguiti importanti lavori di consolidamento del terrapieno e dei terrazzi. Attorno alla nobile dimora è stato montato un grosso ponteggio e le pareti sono state coperte da un telo protettivo: un segnale che il padrone di casa e la sua compagna, per il momento, non intendono trasferirsi sul lago. Lo faranno, di sicuro, tra qualche mese a opere concluse, per godersi le migliorie apportate all'immobile e poter effettuare inviti in una villa ancora più bella.
Il sindaco Roberto Pozzi, interrogato al riguardo, spiega l'entità e le ragioni delle opere in corso: «La società Villa Oleandra Ltd a fine febbraio ha presentato all'ufficio tecnico, all'attenzione dell'architetto Paolo Bianchi, una comunicazione riguardante il proposito di eseguire opere di ordinaria manutenzione riferite all'intero immobile, con verifica dei canali e delle gronde, parziale ritinteggiatura con mantenimento dei colori originari e - trattandosi di una dimora con una lunga storia da raccontare - generale sostituzione delle strutture rovinate dal tempo. La società ha preannunciato l'utilizzo di una piattaforma elevatrice e l'installazione di un ponteggio sulla facciata nord, opere che da poco sono state eseguite».
Secondo il sindaco, gli interventi eseguiti l'anno scorso con notevoli investimenti e l'attuale manutenzione confermano il proposito del cittadino onorario lagliese di mantenere uno stretto contatto con il Lago di Como. «La verità - dice Pozzi - è che tanti in Italia e all'estero invidiano Laglio per la presenza di un personaggio così importante, del quale siamo tutti orgogliosi.

Or, he's fixing it up to sell it? I'm really wondering if he'll do his editing of Ides in Como this summer. He's got quite a long list of projects in the works and he may have to stay close to home base in order to fulfill those obligations. JMHO.

Given that it's an 18th century villa, it would make sense that it would need some regular maintenance. I think the "their" part is just assumption by the outlet reporting the story. I think the Italians just want bragging rights to George by associating Ely with him as a co-owner. They seem to want to forget the fact that one of the main reasons George has stated he would never marry again is due to what he went thru with his divorce.

George has worked too hard for too many years to give up half of what he owns to a woman who has time and time again proven she's interested in media attention and only interested in two things, her career and being with a man who could either further that or keep her in the fashion to which she has become accustomed.

The link below is to some photos from the ABC PrimeTime special he did with Diane Sawyer some years back .

With all the guest he's had there over the years it probably needs a little TLC.

Hi Lorna! I think that she's not interested in a career anymore, just happy being "the girlfriend of..."

Well, she has FAILED at every one that she has attempted (and I don't think that's just our opinion), and it appears that maybe she's even failing at "the girlfriend of..." role too. JMO!

Thats true Melbert. George isn't stupid he would have ensured Eli can't lay claim to his assests. They can call it their Villa all they want she has no claims to it that I'm sure off. It is a really old Villa they always need something done and George may want it spruced up for the new girl! LOL

@melbert you're probably correct about her lack of interest in a career. Wink

Lorna, I really think I'm remembering right from one of her post-SanRemo interviews (and too lazy to go find it) that she did say that she wasn't interested in a TV career. I'm sure I'll be corrected. But, Sarah also said in an interview that she would NEVER go back to waitressing cuz' she was going to be a fashion model and start her own fashion line. She's now in NYC working in a bar as a waitress... At least with her, she knows how to do that. With Eli, she can't really do TV well as we've witnessed. Maybe someone told her that she sucked at it and that's why she said she didn't want to do it?

I really don't spend much time reading Ely interviews so can't help you there. HA!

I figure she'll be history at some point so why bother trying to keep up with what she's doing.

Is it me or do most of George's ahem, lady friends, eventually give up their desire for careers and become content to just follow him around being "the girlfriend"? Who could blame them really. It must be very seductive and easy to become used to private jets, summers in Como in an 18th century villa, walking red carpets at world premieres and awards shows, getting to wear designer clothing, etc.

If you're the type of woman that craves attention - hence your career choice of model or actress - then perhaps it's easy to get complacent with just the attention you get from being George's girlfriend. Of course with the perks come the negatives - paps in your face constantly (which is such a bore except, of course, when you call them to show up to where you'll be - cough Ely, cough Krista, cough Sarah, cough Lisa) and the negative comments from fans can't be all that fun. Hell, only a woman with an iron constitution (or a huge ego or both) would be able to stay and actually bask in it.

So that's where I think Ely has been different from his past gals. She really, really WANTS the attention so she will stick it out as long as possible.

Anyway, it's all conjecture and opinion - who really knows what goes on in her head anyway?

Question

LornaDoone well said, plus they are probably afraid that if they let him fly off alone to often he'll meet a waitress!
