Known as the black widow , Patrizia Reggiani was convicted of ordering the murder of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci, He was fired four fatal shots at point-blank range and from behind by a hitman at the door of his Milan home in 1995. The identity of the instigator of the murder was discovered two years later. By then, Reggiani, who called herself Lady Gucci, was already one of the most eccentric and followed characters in the social chronicle in Italy. She was sentenced in 1998 to 26 years in prison, although she was finally released in 2013. She spent a total of 16 years in prison, the last two of her own free will after rejecting parole , claiming that she had never worked, that she did not plan to start do it then and that she preferred to live locked up. This is one of the most gruesome events in Italian society and the fashion industry.
The story did not end with Reggiani's freedom, because when he was released from prison, a judge awarded him a lifetime compensation of one million euros the year that he had agreed with the deceased, considering that having instigated his murder was not sufficient reason to revoke the agreement. In recent years, she has been involved in an all-out war with her own daughters, first, when they appealed the sentence, and later with her mother, who tried to disqualify her legally. At the end of 2018, the black widow of Italy promised to sign an armistice with her family and to renounce a part of the inheritance in exchange for being able to spend a few seasons in the exclusive villa of the clan in Saint Moritz, to enjoy for a month a year The family sailboat and seeing her grandchildren, with whom she has no relationship.
