REAL Housewives Of New Jersey star Joe Giudice treated fans to a dazzling tour of his father’s rubble-filled villa perched on a hilltop in the stunning Italian mountains.
While the Mediterranean view was sublime, the property itself was in need of some serious TLC.
The RHONJ alum, 48, hails from the Campania region in the south west of Italy, and told daughters Milania and Gia of his plans to renovate the special family home.
Capturing their significant trip to a spot in their family’s heritage on video, he posted a clip to his Instagram page.
Joe can be heard announcing: “I wanna welcome you to the old villa here, this is your grandpa’s old villa.”
He confirmed it would be spread across three levels and added: “There’ll be a spiral staircase over here, and one over there.
Gia, 19, gushed over how large and impressive the rustic villa was before dad of four Joe joked: “That’s right, I made it a big house, I am the master.
“That’s why I’m going to teach you and Milania to be the best general contractors around.
“We are going to take this worldwide. We are going to have homes like this going up all over the world!”
Joe is clearly eager to introduce his daughters with ex wife Teresa, with whom he split last year, to their European heritage.
Earlier this month he was accompanied by the pair and his mom as they trekked in the Italian hills.
Over the same weekend, Joe, Gia and Milania also posed at the bottom of the famous Spanish Steps.
This was their first visit since January, when Gabriella, 16, and Audriana, 11, also joined, because of coronavirus travel restrictions.
The former couple finalized their divorce in September.
Joe went to prison, alongside Teresa, for exaggerating their income, hiding increased assets and failing to file tax returns between 2004 and 2008.
Joe served 41 months in jail for wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud charges, while Teresa only served 11 months.
Joe was later transferred to an ICE detention center, and was deported to Italy last October.
He has been living in a small apartment in Salerno – where he grew up with his father – as he never officially became an American citizen.
Recently, he told how he was “happy” Teresa had moved on with new man Louie Ruelas.
