The short version of this Town & Country magazine article: You can now rent author Gore Vidal's Italian villa.
(Assuming, of course, you can afford a fee of up to $13,000 a night, or $90,000 a week.)
But the much-longer version of it is what La Rondinaia, on the Amalfi Coast, and his other homes showed us about Vidal, and how he discovered — and why he sought — his varying domiciles throughout his life.
The article also walks you through La Rondinaia ... though you can take a stunning virtual tour of it through the rental agency's listing.
Early on in his writing career, Vidal shocked readers and critics with his novel The City and the Pillar, starring a homosexual character; he is also known for his Narratives of Empire novels about American history.
