Since the spotlight has again been shone on the Italian socialite turned gunman. The Ridley Scott-directed movie House of Gucci has received critical acclaim, especially from those who didn’t know about the infamous murder of Maurizio Gucci. So, again we ask where is Patrizia Reggiani now? What is she up to? Is she out of prison? What prompted her action to kill her former husband? Read on to find out more.
Could we call it a struggle for power or great jealousy? Gucci is a world-renowned fashion brand with a long history. It is also an economically buoyant brand, hence the frantic efforts of those entitled to the wealth to control it. Patrizia Reggiani was one of those people who feared that she might lose her power over the company after her husband left her for another woman decided to take action. This action, however, would spiral into other events. And oh, a prison sentence was involved, too.
The House of Gucci is a movie that explicitly retold the real stories of the tussle for power in the famous fashion brand company. You should see it if you haven’t. While you are here, you can read on to find out what happened to Patrizia Reggiani.
Patrizia Reggiani Was Behind The Murder of Maurizio Gucci
The Patrizia Reggiani horror story is about a woman filled with envy and jealousy who allowed the rage of envy to drive her to kill her husband. While she didn’t pull the trigger, investigations showed that she hired a hitman to commit the heinous crime. In 1997, two years after the crime was done, she was sentenced to 29 years in prison. Is that enough to atone for the murder of Maurizio Gucci? Well, of course not.
In 2000, her sentence was reduced to 26 years. In that year, she attempted to end her life, but it was unsuccessful. After staying in prison for some years, she was made available for parole in 2011. However, the condition for parole is that she finds a job. The socialite turned murderer said blatantly that idea of working terrified her as she was not used to it.
Where is Patrizia Reggiani Now? She Was Released in 2016
After spending 18 years in prison, Patrizia Reggiani was released via a parole in 2016. Recall that she refused to opt for the work release program in 2011, but she had a change of mind, taking a parole job in 2014. She was later employed by a costume and jewelry firm called Bozart. Her job was simple; help the design team with designs. She was instrumental in designing rainbow-colored jewelry bags. All these were between the years 2014 to 2016.
Where is Patrizia Reggiani now? Is She At Bozart?
Information gathered from reliable sources hasn’t ascertained where Reggiani is working these days. But she is currently living in Milan, according to an investigative report by The Guardian. British Vogue reports she lived with her 89-year-old mother in a small townhouse in Milan.
Where Are Her Daughters?
Of course, nobody would want to associate themselves with a murderer, even family. Reggiani’s daughters, Alessandra and Allegra Gucci are married and have left Italy to live in Switzerland. They cut off ties with their mother after finding out she was behind the murder of their father.
According to Reggiani, her daughters have abandoned her and haven’t even allowed her to see her grandchildren. She told The Guardian, “We are going through a bad time now,” she said. “They don’t understand me and have cut off my financial support. I have nothing, and I haven’t even met my two grandsons.” Today, there is no tangible report of where Patrizia Reggiani now lives.

The Former Socialite Is Angry With Lady Gaga’s Portrayal of Her
When the Ridley Scott-directed movie, House of Gucci, came out, with Lady Gaga playing the role of Patrizia Reggiani, Reggiani expressed her displeasure. Her reason is that Lady Gaga didn’t consult her before taking up her role. She believed Lady Gaga played her character “without having had the consideration and sensibility to come and meet me,” she said. Her comment has fuelled conversations on social media. However, Lady Gaga replied, “this woman wanted to be glorified for this murder.” We agree with Lady Gaga. If Reggiani did commit the murder, she has no right whatsoever to commercialize her evil.
