Hey do not joke about pastel colors for a 1500's farmhouse with stone age? Do you have an idea of the architecture of 1500? The superintendent of Fine Arts Italian would never allow to color a castle dating back to 1500!
That Pontremoli is an area on the border between Liguria and Tuscany and is filled with medieval houses that can be restored as they were keeping and respecting the architecture of the period in which they were constructed. Homes are of high historical value.

So now the people of Lunigiano are on a treasure hunt to find the house he "bought"? And no one recognizes it? - There goes their tourist attraction!

'50 Shades' Inspiration Helps Clooney Buy Home

'50 Shades' Inspiration Helps Clooney Buy Home

Published: 31 Mar 2014 15:49 GMT+02:00
Updated: 31 Mar 2014 15:49 GMT+02:00

Actor George Clooney has prolonged his love affair with Italy by buying a villa in Tuscany, on the advice of the man who inspired the main character in EL James' erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey.

The heartthrob Hollywood actor snapped up the 1,000-square-metre, two-hectare villa in the Lunigiana area of Tuscany a few days ago.

He made the decision on the advice of Alessandro Proto, a friend and head of financial services firm Proto Organization.
Proto also happens to be the inspiration for the main character in EL James' novel 50 Shades of Grey, Christian Grey, his spokeswoman told The Local. In the bestseller, Grey is a successful businessman whose private life is dominated by erotic practices such as bondage and sadism (specifically, BDSM).

La Repubblica newspaper noted that at Clooney's new countryside estate "privacy is guaranteed", far more so than at his home on the shores of Lake Como in northern Italy.

After spending millions on a villa in Laglio 12 years ago, Clooney was made an honorary citizen of the town. But he has struggled to avoid unwanted attention, prompting the local mayor to declare a 100-metre exclusion zone around Clooney’s home.

I thought the author of "Fifty Shades" was an Aussie housewife. How would she ever know this man? - I could be wrong - never read the books.

Sorry I really don't know. I did try to read the book because everyone was talking about it. I could not it made me sick not because it was sex as much as it was gross and perverted. Just me.

Given that this is a 16th century building that is being renovated, all these things could be added.

Not surprised no one is sure where it is. It's surrounded by acres of parkland isn't it? Pontremoli itself looks lovely

Then the agent for a different house got the bright idea of saying George Clooney bought the house next door and folks flocked to buy HIS decrepit piece of shit, 1600th century, crumbling villa for 10 times the asking price!

It posted twice. If you get to a post before it gets read you can delete it, but once read I cannot delete. So there are two of the same article.

@PAN - Great find! Loved the slide show (esp. the shots from Out of Sight) and the video. So, I guess it's true. Looks like there are at least 3 buildings on site - plenty of room for the boys to visit - and I think the article said there's a pool (although my Italian is practically non-existant). It's going to cost him a mint to fix the place up.

What I don't get is this : The place looks like it's at the bottom of a hill, with other houses up at the top. If he wants privacy, why get a place where others can look down on his property? Unless those other buildings are his, too. Could be.

Don't think it is, Lizzy, but as it's surrounded by all his own land - and looks as tho he's actually bought an entire estate - he'll have all the views he wants.

Places for people to stay, studios, offices, the lot - just like Laglio but with more land.

And he'll make it beautiful - Laglio is!

E la casa di Clooney si rivela una bufala
In Lunigiana caccia alla dimora dell’attore, ma quella foto era stata fatta a Chianni. La società: «Depistaggio per la privacy»

di Ilaria Bonuccelli
In principio era Tom. L’aviatore accigliato e tenebroso, Top Gun e Toscana. Così sembrava, almeno. Poi, la passione a Cruise com’è venuta è passata e la villa da 25 milioni in Lucchesia non l’ha mai comprata. Poi , in ordine sparso, si sarebbero affacciati in Toscana, ma senza restarci, Charlotte Casiraghi, William e Kate (d’Inghilterra), Gerard Depardieu. Nessuno, però, come George Clooney, finora, si era spinto così in alto. Fino in Lunigiana per comprarsi una casa. Il suo navigatore, però, a un certo punto deve aver smarrito il segnale perché l’immobile di cui si sarebbe innamorato - un casale in pietra a vista - non si trova sopra Carrara. In realtà, si trova a Chianni, in provincia di Pisa, in località Rivalto. E il fatto che Clooney l’abbia acquistato è una bufala.

In the beginning was Tom . The aviator sullen and gloomy , Top Gun and Tuscany. So it seemed , at least. Then , the passion to Cruise as coming is passed and the $ 25 million villa in Lucca has never bought it. Then , in no particular order , would be facing in Tuscany , but not to stay there , Charlotte Casiraghi, William and Kate ( of England) , Gerard Depardieu. No one, however , as George Clooney , so far, had gone so high. Up in Lunigiana to buy a home. Your browser , however , at some point he must have lost the signal because the property that you would fall in love - a farmhouse in stone - is not over Carrara. In fact, it is located in Chianni , in the province of Pisa , in the locality Rivalto. And the fact that the Clooney has purchased a hoax .

As I was fooled only a week ago with the article GC to Marry BP & AJ at Ayers rock...I have been a little more cautious with the stories on here.

I actually was looking at accomadation for x-mas at Ayers Rock...and was considering going. Fooled!!

But even if these stories are fake...its wonderful...to get a glimpse of these places you will never go to.

This one in particular...was just lovely....I thought Australia had some scenery!

I think the press play with us on here.

Thanks it's me....

google translation for the first link

" Fraud via manipulation of the market," the financier arrested Alessandro Proto

The soldiers of the Guardia di Finanza in Milan Alessandro Proto financier arrested , accused of market manipulation and obstruction of the supervisory bodies . The shutdown request , signed by the investigating magistrate Stefania Donadeo was made by deputy prosecutor Francesco Greek and Isidoro pm Palma. Just this week the news was made ​​official dell'acquistoda part of the newspaper Proto "Public" for 400 thousand euro. With resumption block of journalists and an announcement: " It was time to have my own newspaper. We will make the newspaper Done right ". Even the original newspaper Done , moreover, was already finished in his viewfinder.

Proto , who had lied about his degree at Bocconi, which has never been a student, is " a clever crook damage inexperienced entrepreneurs seeking liquidity outside the banking channels ," the investigating judge in the order of remand . " The investigations carried out over the entire operation of Proto - says the measure - as well as listening to telephone conduits for over two months by the core revenue inspectors bring to exclude unequivocally that he really take care of trades on the stock exchange on behalf of Italian or foreign investors . " " Proto lives first of all the proceeds of the scams perpetrated against several entrepreneurs - observed the investigating judge - seeking finance and information manipulation seen in the market as a means through which to be known and attract naive investors into his traps ."

According to the investigating judge who signed his arrest warrant , there is the risk of " concrete" that the arrested flee abroad , considering that resides in Switzerland and has bank accounts in the territory Helvetic and Spain. The " pattern " followed by Proto , according to the reconstruction of the Prosecutor , was to disclose to the market through false news releases disseminated by the press thus altering the price of securities on the Stock Exchange .

Heard by Consob on false information disclosed from time to time to the market, according to the investigating judge Proto provided " general information , without any serious cognitive approach about the actual substance of the transactions of the Stock Exchange of which he declared himself on several occasions maker " . " As for the danger of pollution of evidence - writes the investigating judge - the technical activities have highlighted the particular activities Proto to lie even in the face in public activities on official occasions ." In his load , finally, there is also the danger of a recurrence of the " same offense " yield " highly likely" the activity of false information to the market lasted for over a year with releases on a number of listed companies . "

In the count of indictment is challenged specifically to "have failed to inform the Consob timely information regarding the purchase and sale transactions involving securities listed on international markets." The investigation concerns the activities of traders all over the field as well as its communications to the market regarding listed companies. Analyzing his press is riscontrerebbero those that are defined by the investigators of the " half-truths " . For the Prosecution for its proposals had actually been made , the market was never informed that were rejected to the sender immediately.

In the past, judges have also collected the testimony of Proto and he would justify the vagueness of its press , explaining that he works on behalf of investors who turn to its own companies and not directly acquires the shares of the target company communications . The investigations also gave rise to a second input of the Department of the General Command of the Body and " helped to identify a number of communications to the market turned out to be the outcome of indagininon reliable ," is written in a note.

The arrest of three months following the news of the investigation for the possibility of market manipulation and fraud dating back to last November , a few days later, that is , the announcement of the candidacy of Proto in the primary of the PDL ("I white though to no avail , the only leader remains Berlusconi , " he said) , who have not carried out then anyway . Investigators were also evaluated cases of bankruptcy within the same investigation on the galaxy 's corporate financier.

From the reconstructed from interviews in recent months, Proto is a consultant of 38 years . He would base in Lugano and would work through the Proto organization, whose " headquarters " in London, according to reports from his website . "We are one of the leading investment advisory firms and real estate in the world ," says the website , which does not mention the names of clients or operations but tells in detail a business philosophy based on " enthusiasm and aggressiveness ." In October Proto announced the signing of a shareholders' agreement on the RCS ( the editor of Corriere della Sera ) from four foreign investors ( the Brazilian Jorge Froemming , Indians and Bushra Alrazmi Kushal Pal Singh and the American Paulius Broad ), together with holders 2.84 % stake in the publishing company . After several requests for clarification not satisfied, however, Consob had announced October 31 the absence of evidence to be able to certify " the truth ."

Before the RCS in the viewfinder of Proto had entered the project FonSai - Unipol financier announced that it had offered the ad Unipol , Carlo Cimbri , € 200 million in support of the plan of merger. And before that it was the turn of Unicredit : Proto announced that it had collected the 1, 2 % of the share capital through its investors and , while we were discussing the renewal of top managers, even ran for the presidency of the bank. So Tod's , whose Proto said he had detected 2.8% , and the slow rise in MPS , Fiat, Mediobanca all announced investments of which I was never found trace , either because below 2% ( threshold where triggers an obligation to inform CONSOB ) , or because they are purchased by individual investors , either because - according to him - immediately resold .

Until the official announcement of the shareholders of RCS, which led to the intervention of Consob. But the interests of Proto do not stop there : a year ago, when the San Raffaele was on the verge of collapse , the financier predicted the intention to make an offer better than that of the IOR and the family Malacalza . Floor then jumped . Finally, politics and real estate. Finally, just yesterday , is proposed as a buyer of the historic headquarters of Corriere della Sera in Milan in Via Solferino .
