A list of famous people that live in Italy reads like a who's who of A-List Hollywood actors. Ah, Italy! Who wouldn't want to have a place there, or least vacation in the boot-shaped country often? There are plenty of celebrities living in Italy, and they’re living large, to say the least. This list offers a glimpse into abundant lives of the famous people who live in Italy. Some of these actors, singers, and fashion designers live there full-time; others use their million dollar villas as vacation homes - but all of them have called Italy home base at some point.
