They regret that family members are “shown to be scoundrels, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them.”
Released last week at the cinema, House of Gucci strongly displeased the family of Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver in the film). Ridley scott tells the story of the mid-1990s, when the wife of this heir to the famous family of the luxury brand, Patrizia Reggiani (played by Lady Gaga) ordered the assassination of her husband. “The production of the film did not take care to consult the heirs” before telling this story, regrets Aldo Gucci, spokesperson for the family, who publicly complains about the treatment given by Scott and his teams in the film of its members “shown as scoundrels, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them”. He adds that he is thinking about filing a complaint against this film produced by MGM and United Artists: “We reserve the right to take any initiative necessary to protect our name and image, as well as those of those we love.” The press release also insists on “the distorted image” of Reggiani, who would be “shown as a victim trying to survive in a male company.” The heirs consider this false, recalling that she received an 18-year prison sentence for the murder of Maurizio Gucci, and that at the time, the company was “already an inclusive box”, headed by several women, notably within its American branch.

This isn’t the first time the Gucci family have complained about Ridley Scott’s film, recalls The Hollywood Reporter by relaying these words. Patrizia Gucci, daughter of Aldo (who is played by Al Pacino in the film) has previously explained publicly that “this project stole the identity of a family to make a profit within the Hollywood system”, to which the director replied: “I won’t go down this road. Remember one Gucci got murdered and another went to jail for tax evasion, so don’t talk to me about making a profit. do that, you are in the public domain. “
