Police confiscated the cannabis Wednesday from a villa in the Varcaturo near Naples, the Italian news agency ANSA reported.
The villa housed a greenhouse complete with artificial lighting, heating, irrigation and ventilation for production of the marijuana to be sold illegally, police said.
After neighbors spotted "suspicious and numerous people coming and going" with bags of fertilizer, a search warrant was issued, ANSA reported.
