Object X: Villa Aurora

A ceiling painting by Caravaggio along with murals by Guercino in the same villa in the center of Rome, two 17th-century painters where Caravaggio was partly the inspiration for Guercino. This makes Villa Aurora, currently considered the most expensive residential building in the world, with a value of 470 million euros. Ignace Meuwissen is presently negotiating with several new potential owners of the villa. "Whoever buys this, buys history," he says. And today, Meuwissen takes you on a unique tour of Villa Aurora's history.
