In Italy, a Gen Zer lives in a 900-year-old castle with 45 rooms that her family has owned for 28 generations.

Ludovica Sannazzaro Natta is a 22-year-old who’s lived in a nearly 900-year-old castle in Northern Italy since she was 4.

To say the property is palatial would be an understatement — in 2021, BI’s Lauren Edmonds reported that it’s over 100,00 square feet and has 45 rooms. It also houses a 269,097-square-foot garden and historical archives dating back to the 11th century.

Sannazzaro Natta told BI’s Lindsay Dodgson that the castle has been her family’s home for 28 generations. Sannazzaro Natta isn’t royal but has aristocratic ties.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Sannazzaro Natta — who was studying at a US university — returned to Italy and began documenting her family’s living situation on TikTok.

Each video provides a window into the castle’s history, unique features, and details about Sannazzaro Natta’s family background.

Her videos blew up, and now her TikTok account has over 1.7 million followers. Her family initially questioned her TikToks, but she said they now support her and even help her make her videos.

Sannazzaro Natta also said life in a castle has made her who she is.

“I appreciate history, I appreciate culture a lot more, and it made me very aware of how time changed everything,” she said. And while her living situation is unique, she’s proud of it.

“Yes, it’s a castle, but it’s my home,” Sannazzaro Natta said
