Life is dolce for Angelina Jolie and Brad PItt, as the pair have purchased a roughly $40-million Italian villa, according to a new report.

The 15-bedroom estate -- in Valpolicella, in the province of Verona, where ‘Romeo and Juliet’ was set -- counts among its features a screening room, two pools, several Jacuzzis and a home gym.


‘Mr. Pitt and Ms. Jolie saw it for 10 minutes and they said yes,’ Alexander Proto, a consultant for the property, told E! News.

‘They were very determined. We are very pleased [to] have worked with them … no problems, very nice, very competent, ideal customers.’

Living in this kind of luxury is nothing new for the Jolie-Pitts -- remember, twins Knox and Vivienne were born while the family was camping out at Chateau Miraval in the south of France.
