For a modest $2.7 million, you can own the mansion that set the scene for much of the critically acclaimed film Call Me By Your Name. Laying on the border of Italy and Switzerland, the house is where the love story of Elio (VMAN39 cover star Timothée Chamalet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer) plays out. Built in the 16th century, the home includes 14 bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Previous to painting romantic imagery for the film, the structure was a fortress before it was converted into a home.

Director Luca Guadagnino had even considered purchasing the lot before receiving the script for the film. Any fan of the Italian director would know how important proper settings are to him. As he tells Elle Decor, “We tell stories, and those stories must happen in the space. Because we are not the product of, say, a piece of dialogue. The character must be a product of the behavior and interaction of the space." 

The film is heading into the Oscars with four nominations for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor for Chalamet’s performance, as well as Sufjan Stevens’ nomination for Best Original Song. Assuming it wins at least one of its nods, you'd have your very own piece of Academy Award history after paying for the home.
