“It’s better to cry in a Rolls-Royce than to be happy on a bicycle.”

Patrizia Reggiani enunciated her best-known phrase in a television interview when she was still part of the highest echelon of the Italian elite. It is perhaps the one that best defines the obsession with luxury and glamor that has accompanied her for most of her life.

Years later, the “black fashion widow,” as she would come to be known, became one of Italy’s most hated women after a media trial in which she was sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for orchestrating the murder of her ex-husband by a hit man. for rent in 1995.

The ex was none other than Maurizio Gucci, heir to the fashion label Gucci, founded by his grandfather, the prestigious designer Guccio Gucci, in 1906.
