The identification of Odescalchi, a castle which has hosted a pope and kings, may be the end of the trail for reporters who have been trying to track down the Cruise-Holmes venue ever since the couple announced their nuptials last month.
But a receptionist at the castle told Reuters the report was not true and that it had no such booking.
The paper wrote there would be a warm-up party with other celebrities on November 16, a Catholic wedding ceremony for the pair on November 17 and a final ritual on November 18 conducted by Scientology, the church founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard and of which Cruise is a member.
Rome-based Il Messaggero did not say how the twice-divorced Cruise could have a Catholic wedding.
