To the question of another Italian journalist: “Is it true that you bought a house in Umbria?” Ed Sheeran answers:
“Top secret, I can say it is in the center of Italy and it is not Tuscany because it is too crowded with British people. There is a vineyard, and as soon as I saw it I decided I had to buy that place. My parents came to Italy on their honeymoon, you have history, culture, food. I can not wait to take my kids here, it will be nice to learn Italian together. I’m not a Hollywood villa person. However I certainly am a Umbrian house lover.
