Maurizio Gucci Remembered

MILAN — A murder, money, revenge, fortune-tellers, a hit man, a scorned wife and the enduring allure of the Gucci brand. There’s enough material for a blockbuster movie. Fast-forward some 25 years, and a film is indeed being made, with images from the “House of Gucci” movie directed by Ridley Scott starting to circulate.

The Tragic Murder Of Maurizio Gucci

Before the Gucci brand was headed by figures outside the family, the company was in the hands of Maurizio Gucci, the last family member who would hold this position. Unlike the steady wave of success the company has ridden in recent years, the high-fashion brand was embroiled in tumultuous family battles while Gucci headed the company. Eventually, the stream of chaos ended in tragedy when Gucci was shot dead in the foyer of his office in 20 Via Palestro, Milan, in 1995.
