Is historic Rome villa the world’s most beneficial property?

A historic Rome villa goes to sell-off this week, with the opening bid set at €471m ($535m).

The property is home to the only known ceiling mural by Italian baroque artist Michelangelo Merisi, better known as Caravaggio.

The sale is the result of a drawn-out legacy conflict following the death of its former owner Prince Nicolo Boncompagni Ludovisi in 2018.

The BBC’s Rome correspondent Mark Lowen was permitted in to take a sneak peek inside ahead of the sale.
