The buzz around the “House of Gucci” film has been steadily growing since the project was announced in November 2019, and now as the film is set to debut this fall, interest in the Gucci family is growing among moviegoers and fashion fanatics.
Ridley Scott’s film offers a dramatized version of the real-life events surrounding the murder of Maurizio Gucci, who was the head of the Gucci fashion house in the ’90s and was the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci.

Here, WWD takes a closer look at each character’s story ahead of the film’s debut. Read on for more.
