House of Gucci is Lady Gaga’s latest film based on the true story of the murder of the Gucci heir. The film is set in the 1970s and mid 90s when these incidents occur. This film holds many facts, from the actual murder to support and insults from family members and those who are narrated in the film.
1. Appointed from a True Story
House of Gucci is based on Sara Gay Forden’s book, House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Charm, and Greed. One such story is the 1995 murder of Maurizio Gucci. The murder caused turmoil in Italy at the time. Maurizio is heir to the Gucci dynasty, which is known as the epitome of luxury. However, Gucci is also known as a family with internal conflicts due to power struggles and possessions. On March 27, 1995, Maurizio was shot dead by an assassin on the steps of his office as soon as he arrived there for work. Two years later, Maurizio’s ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani was arrested on suspicion of being behind Maurizio’s murder. Patrizia’s motives are said to be jealousy, money, and revenge on Maurizio. Prosecutors also alleged that Patrizia may have dominated the Gucci property and tried to prevent Maurizio from marrying Paola Franchi.
2. Released Exactly 100 Years of Gucci
The film House of Gucci was released exactly 100 years old by the fashion house Gucci which was founded by Guccio Gucci in 1921. After working at the Savoy Hotel, London, he was inspired to make leather bags because he was captivated by the various luxury suitcases owned by elite guests who were visiting. Returning to his hometown of Florence, he started making bags for small businesses. However, Gucci’s business is developing by maintaining exclusivity and excellent workmanship, so that rich people want to buy it, so Gucci has a luxury goods label.
3. Against the Gucci Family
In early December, the entire Gucci family screamed at the film. They opposed the existence of this film, which they did not agree with from the beginning. They even called the House of Gucci an insult. The Gucci family believed it inappropriate to portray the murder of Maurizio Gucci as a survivor of the company’s male-centric culture.
