More than a brand, it is an institution. If it continues to shine the catwalks of Milan Fashion Week, the Gucci family has had its share of disappointments. And unsuspected adversaries.
Ridley Scott tackles a myth of Italian culture with the help of an impressive cast (Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek, Camille Cottin) which should thrill cinemas on November 24 .

He is the last member of the Gucci clan to run the family business. On March 27, 1995, Maurizio Gucci was shot dead at the entrance to his Milan offices.

He is unstoppable. Soon to be 84, Ridley Scott might even compete if The last duel is still in theaters at the time of the release of House of Gucci. The prolific British director is a lover of historical narratives. And could have been well inspired by this Italian scandal with very Hollywood decadent characters. Not to mention that he has already staged some of the most cult heroines in cinema, from Ripley in Alien To Thelma et Louise. Something to leave you dreaming about his collaboration with Lady Gaga …
