The Gucci family has issued an impassioned response to the “extremely painful” depiction presented in HouseOfGucci.

The family has issued an impassioned response to the Lady Gaga –led biopic, which it labels as “extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the legacy on which the brand is built today.”

Adam Driveras Maurizio Gucci, the Guccis have issued a statement branding the movie “extremely painful” and “an insult” to their legacy. (Note: The living Gucci family members are no longer involved with the company.)In remarks first published by Italian news agency ANSA, the Guccis railed against the film’s “anything but accurate” narrative. “The film’s production did not bother to consult the heirs before describing Aldo Gucci—president of the company for 30 years [played by

Al Pacino]—and the members of the Gucci family as thugs who were ignorant and insensitive to the world around them,” the statement reads, adding thatHouse of Gucciascribes “entirely fabricated attitudes and conduct to the protagonists of the notorious events.”

The biopic depicts the murder of Maurizio, grandson of fashion-house founder Guccio Gucci, which was orchestrated by his ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani. “This is extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the legacy on which the brand is built today,” the statement continues.

This framing is also inaccurate, the Guccis argue, citing that the “inclusive” company held “several women in top positions” during the film’s 1980s purview. “The Gucci family lives by honoring the work of its predecessors, the memory of whom does not deserve to be upset merely to put on a fictional show that does not do justice to its protagonists,” the statement concludes, noting that “the Gucci family reserves the right to take any action necessary to protect the name, image, and dignity of themselves and their loved ones.”
