It’s safe to say that Gianni Versace’s house may be the one thing that is just as famous as his contribution to the fashion world. The Miami Beach mansion was made famous by the fashion designer, and made infamous by his murder, which took place on the steps of the estate. The new season of American Crime Story, which is set to premiere in January, will follow the story of Versace’s murder. The hype around the upcoming series has got people curious about the estate. Watch the video below to get a tour of Gianni Versace’s house!
According to executive producer Ryan Murphy, the story of the murder will be told in reverse. “The first episode deals with the literal murder,” he said on the TCA Press Tour. “And then we tell the story in reverse, we get into [Andrew Cunanan’s motive], and why he wanted to do this.”
The first season of the show dealt with the O.J. Simpson trial and focused on the societal implications of the case, such as the race relations and police brutality that was so prevalent at the time. “More than why he was killed—it’s why it was allowed to happen,” he told Harpers Bazaar of the new season. “With American Crime Story, we’re always trying to talk about a crime within a social idea. One of the reasons Cunanan was able to make his way across the country and pick off these victims, many of whom were gay, was because of homophobia at the time.”
