"Oggi Gucci è una multinazionale, ma con noi
non c'entra più nulla. L'ultima volta che sono

e ripercorrere come testimone la storia della
Sono orgogliosa di essere una Gucci, di aver
ereditato un patrimonio, qualunque esso sia,
umano, di carattere, di stile e creatività e voglio
che la memoria di quella grande storia resti
fisata nel tempo".
Dalla fondazione dell'azienda da parte del
bisnonno Guccio alla storia d'amore dei genitori
Paolo e Yvonne, ai lunghi anni di lavoro
a Firenze e all'estero, Patrizia Gucci ripercorre

tragica scomparsa del cugino Maurizio, e infie
i contrasti tra i fratelli e tra padri e fili che
porteranno alla vendita dell'azienda.

al mondo, sinonimo di intr
