Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt buy $40-million Italian villa

July 28, 2010 |  6:40 pm


Life is dolce for Angelina Jolie and Brad PItt, as the pair have purchased a roughly $40-million Italian villa, according to a new report.

The 15-bedroom estate -- in Valpolicella, in the province of Verona, where "Romeo and Juliet" was set -- counts among its features a screening room, two pools, several Jacuzzis and a home gym. 

"Mr. Pitt and Ms. Jolie saw it for 10 minutes and they said yes," Alexander Proto, a consultant for the property, told E! News.

"They were very determined. We are very pleased [to] have worked with them … no problems, very nice, very competent, ideal customers."

Living in this kind of luxury is nothing new for the Jolie-Pitts -- remember, twins Knox and Vivienne were born while the family was camping out at Chateau Miraval in the south of France.
