The Palazzetto, a 16th-century Roman mansion, is apparently being listed at the Hilton & Hyland company for $42-mln worth of cryptocurrencies. And no, your eyes aren’t fooling you.
The selling of the 17,000-square foot mansion will be the first of its kind, setting an entirely new precedent for all the world to witness. This was built by the celebrated architect and sculptor Giacomo Della Porta, who collaborated with Michelangelo in the later part of the 16th century. Examples of their collaboration were the facade and stairs of the Palazzo Senatorio on the Capitoline Hill, the dome and chapels of Madonna and St. Francesco, and the very dome in St. Peter’s, which made Giacomo very famous.
Within the mansion are 11 bedrooms, 15.5 baths, and three kitchens. It also boasts of a modern gym, movie theater, spa, and entertainment room.
Of course, those who can afford the mansion in cash can buy it, given that they fork it over into the preferred payment method, which is cryptocurrencies.
To be sure, this is not the first property to be sold through crypto. In February, cryptos were accepted as payment means for four condominiums in Washington D.C. However, this is the very first time that a 16th-century mansion, and a very famous one at that, is going to be sold through cryptocurrencies.
