Princess Faces Eviction from Roman Villa

"An American-born princess faces eviction from a Rome villa with the world's only ceiling painting by Caravaggio after the historic property failed to sell at a court-ordered auction for the fifth time.

Princess Rita Jenrette Boncompagni Ludovisi, 73, told Reuters on Friday that she was "stunned" after the courts ordered her to vacate Casino dell'Aurora within 60 days, saying she intended to appeal the ruling. The eviction notice stems from two issues, reports Italian newspaper La Repubblica, the first of which was the collapse of a wall on the property, resulting in the closure of an adjacent street."
