According to profit.ro, businessman Ion Ţiriac has become the official owner of a property of more than 2,000 hectares in Tuscany, for which, according to the information sent by Profit.ro in the autumn of last year, he paid 8 million euros.
The Italian press has now announced that the property is in Semproniano, a commune in the province of Grosseto, Tuscany, in the center of Italy, with a population of only 1,153. “A holding company of Ion Tiriac is the new owner of the historical heritage,” the Italian press reported the selling of the property built in 1240.
According to the cited source, the property is Tenuta Cortevecchia, a 2,300-acre organic farm, surrounded by cypress trees, which also offers rustic accommodation units set in traditional Tuscan buildings. “We hope Cortevecchia will find with Tiriac that splendor he has had over the centuries.” said Mayor Miranda Brugi.
In the autumn, Tiriac showed that the property belonged to former Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti.
“The property was worth 40 million euros, but it was put on sale at first with 20 million euros because it had debts, and the price eventually reached 8 million euros. Free!, “said Ion Ţiriac.
Giulio Andreotti (1919-2013) was the premier of Italy for three mandates, twice in the 1970s and once in the early 1990s, occupying the post of Foreign Minister in the 1980s. He was considered one of Italy’s most influential politicians. In 1993, he was tried for ties to the mafia, which would have liquidated his political opponents. Although it was established that he met with members of the mafia, the court acquitted Andreotti.
Tuscany is one of the most beautiful regions of Italy, with cities such as Florence, Pisa, Siena and Lucca.
