The historic home in the Italian hills where French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy spent her early childhood is staking a "for sale" sign once again, just months after a Saudi billionaire bought the palatial property for US$25 million. Saudi businessman Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, has exclusively relisted the historic castle with Immobilsarda S.r.l. with a reported asking price of about US$28 million. The 40-room, 2,100-sq m Castello di Castagneto Po has been repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt over the years but is believed to first date from the year 1019.
