The long-awaited movie The House of Gucci finally hits the big screen this month.
The new movie The House of Gucci is based on a book by the journalist Sara Gay Forden, the main plot is inspired by the life of the ex-wife of businessman Maurizio Gucci: French Reggiani. This movie is directed by Ridley Scott and has Lady Gaga in the lead role. The film also stars Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Jared Leto, and Salma Hayek.
It tells the story of the marriage of Maurizio and Francesca and the conflictive relationship between the family members of this famous Italian fashion franchise. The whole is wrapped in an atmosphere of luxury, ambition, envy, and betrayal that ends in tragedy.
Thus, on March 27, 1995, a man outside his office in Milan shot Maurizio Gucci to death. After almost two years of investigations, the police arrested Patrizia Reggiani on January 31, 1997, and accused her of hiring a hitman to kill her ex-husband, and sentenced her to 29 years in prison along with four other men implicated in this homicide. In 2016 he regained his freedom for “good behavior”.
In cases like this, we can assure you that reality sometimes surpasses fiction and that is that “the black widow of fashion” was so ambitious that she used to say:
“It is better to cry on a Rolls Royce than to be happy on a bicycle.”
A story, undoubtedly fascinating, that goes “in crescendo”, that tells us the psychology of Mrs. Reggiani who is driven to commit the crime for a combination of reasons that go from jealousy, greed, resentment, and love to money.
We can only recommend that you go see it at your nearest cinema. Here is a preview of the movie trailer:
