If you’ve watched The Godfather III, you may recognize Castello Pennisi di Floristella, a neo-gothic structure that featured predominantly in scenes throughout the film. Against the backdrop of the Sicilian town of Acireale, this castle was originally built by an Italian baron to house his art collection. Now, it’s on the market after five generations of his family have called it home.

At $6.6 million, the Castello Pennisi has anything you could imagine for your Godfather or White Lotus fantasies alike. With twenty-two bedrooms, a wine cellar, chapel, and marble staircase, it’s as much a work of art as the collection once housed here. Boasting 43,000 square feet and 2.5 acres of surrounding park, you’ll be forgiven if you think the high price tag isn’t so bad for all of the land and house you’re getting.

Whether you want to live out your aristocratic fantasies or go for a more…er…mob-style living, the Castello Pennisi di Floristella may just be the house for you (or at least a boy can dream).


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
