Ridley Scott’s new film: “House of Gucci” has put under the microscope the rich Italian family and the execution of their heir Maurizio, ordered by his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani.
And while the film provides us with answers concerning some of the family members, it leaves us in the dark for others, such as the daughters of Patrizia and Maurizio, Alessandra and Allegra (the latter is not shown in the film).
The girls were 20 and 16 years old respectively when their mother was arrested for their father’s death. They initially defended her and Allegra even studied at the Law School of Milan University in order to help with her mother’s release. Now, however, they have cut off all ties with her. In a 2016 interview, Patrizia states: “We are going through a bad time now. They don’t understand me and have cut off my financial support. I have nothing, and I haven’t even met my two grandsons.”
Alessandra and Allegra tried to prevent their mother from claiming income from their father’s estate. They took the case to court, but because they lost, Patrizia receives 1.47 million annually by Gucci.
According to The Guardian, Alessandra and Allegra are now married with children and living a quiet life in Switzerland away from the public eye. They inherited properties in New York, Saint Moritz and Milan amounting to about 400 million. They also own Creole, the family yacht which is also the biggest wooden yacht in the world.
