NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE from director Ridley Scott, starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver

The sensational true story of murder, madness, glamour, and greed that shook the Gucci dynasty, now fully updated with a new afterword

On the morning of March 27, 1995, four quick shots cracked through Milan's elegant streets. Maurizio Gucci, heir to the fabulous fashion dynasty, had been ambushed, slain on the steps to his office by an unknown gunman. Two years later, Milan's chief of police entered the sumptuous palazzo of Maurizio's ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani??nicknamed "the Black Widow" by the press??and arrested her for the murder.

Did Patrizia kill her ex-husband because his spending was wildly out of control? Did she do it because he was preparing to marry his mistress? Or is it possible Patrizia didn't do it at all?

The Gucci story is one of glitz, glamour, and intrigue??a chronicle of the rise, near fall, and subsequent resurgence of a fashion dynasty. Beautifully written, impeccably researched, and widely acclaimed, The House of Gucci is a page-turning account of high fashion, high finance, and heartrending personal tra… (mere)

This is a sweeping history of the fashion house Gucci, the family drama, the rise to coveted product, and so much about the nitty-gritty business of it all. I think if you go in wanting the history of a fashion business, you'll be pleasantly entertained with the drama and murder bits, but don't read this for a crime drama by any means.
Also screw you Gucci for not allowing women to own any part of the company, that's not a great legacy. ( )

There is a chain of events that led me to this book. First, I want to see the movie, because I love Lady Gaga’s acting skills. Then, I saw the Dateline episode that focused on the murder of Maurizio Gucci and trial of his ex-wife, Patrizia. I was pretty intrigued by the story. Dateline also advertised this book. I figured I would read it as the book is often better than the movie, in my experience. Well, I’m pretty sure I will like the movie better.

This book heavily focused on the growth of the Gucci business and the family drama. I think it was well written, researched, and detailed. It was just way more than I have an interest. I was interested in the family dynamics, marriage between Maurizio and Patrizia, their children, and relationships after their separation. I like learning about people and not so much about the business.

I have a feeling I will like the movie better. ( )

Too much economics, not enough Lady Gaga. It does serve the valuable purpose of making the reader completely uninterested in high fashion. ( )

The book begins with the shooting of Mauricio Gucci in the early nineties. It then rewinds to present a history of the firm.
It Is from Florence Italy. While there is a legend the family built saddles hundreds of trays ago the author discounts that and tells the story of the modern fashion company. The main focus is on the family and the leaders of the company - how they lead their lives and spent the wealth they developed.
There is a lot of detail that makes the story interesting to someone not in to style or fashion. ( )

What a jam-packed ride! A page turner dense with details, history and intrigue! I was sucked into the life of this crazy family drama. Very well researched and so interesting. I have not seen the movie and wanted to read this book first and now look forward to seeing how it was treated. There was so much fighting in the family and with other businesses. The excesses of success and failure. I found it very interesting and enjoyed learning about this world-famous name. Although I have never been fond of Gucci, but i could not put this story down and made me want to learn about so many of the people involved. ( )
