Lady Gaga and Adam Driver’s new movie Gucci House is as full of opulence and style as the fashion house it is named after.
Filmed across Italy during the COVID lockdown at the end of 2020, the real crime drama features several lavish residences that double as homes of the Gucci family.
From Milan to Rome, via the ski resorts of the Aosta Valley, the filming locations are numerous and breathtaking. Here, News week can reveal where they are.
The house of Rodolfo Gucci
A lot of Gucci House was filmed in Milan, and the most amazing location of all was the house of Rodolfo Gucci.
Patriarch Gucci, played by Jeremy Irons, spends his twilight years hidden away in the magnificent property, more focused on the past than his son Maurizio (Driver) ‘s romance with Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga).
Villa Necchi-Campiglio also serves as Rodolfo’s home in the film and is quite conveniently located in Italy’s fashion capital, Via Mozart.
The property was first built in 1935 by the Necchi-Campiglio family, members of a sewing machine dynasty. It is now a museum which has preserved the original furniture and interior decoration of its former owners.
Fans of the film can book a visit to the museum, tickets are just € 14 ($ 15.76) for adults, € 9 for students and € 6 for children, and it’s open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesdays. at Sunday.
The Gucci family residence
The magnificent villa by the lake, Maurizio’s uncle, Aldo (Al Pacino), takes him with Patrizia to Lake Como.
Villa Balbiano is the largest private villa on the western shore of Lake Como. It was built in the 16th century by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio and overlooks the lake.
Although not owned by the Gucci family, the opulent property seems the perfect place for the fashion empire with its incredible art collections, lavish furnishings and stunning views.
Villa Balbiano can be rented for weddings, parties and holidays.
Skiing in St Moritz
The Gucci family has a long history with the Swiss ski resort of St Moritz in Switzerland, as Rodolfo built a house in the village of Suvretta.
Maurizio’s daughters, Alessandra and Allegra, are reportedly currently living in Switzerland with their respective families and owning properties there.
Gucci House Director Ridley Scott did not shoot in the Swiss ski resort for the film, but used the village of Gressoney Saint-Jean in the Aosta Valley in the Italian Alps.
The villa Scott used for the party scenes was originally built in the 1920s and has since been restored, has 24 bedrooms and is currently on sale for € 990,000.
Wedding bells and shopping sprees
Milan is where many sets for Gucci House can be found, as multiple locations were used for important scenes.
Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi is where Rodolfo takes Maurizio and Patrizia for lunch, their first outing together.
Maurizio and Patrizia are also enjoying a day at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a magnificent shopping arcade in Milan.
Rome was also a key location for the film, as the couple’s wedding was filmed at Santa Maria in Campitelli, a 17th-century Baroque church in the capital.
House of Gucci is now in theaters in the United States.
