Sofia Coppola will marry longtime love, rocker Thomas Mars, this summer, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

And the spot couldn't be more romantic: Director Coppola, 40, and Mars, 34, will exchange vows at Palazzo Margherita, her father Francis Ford Coppola's 19th century villa in Bernalda, located in southern Italy.

(The Coppola family has roots in the region, and the celebrated Godfather director Francis Ford, 72, is currently rebuilding and renovated the property.)

Coppola and Mars (of the band Phoenix) are parents to daughters Romy, 4, and Cosima, 23 months.

It's the second marriage for Somewhere director Coppola, who divorced fellow director Spike Jonze in 2003.
