After the unfortunate incident, the Gucci daughters veer off the spotlight. While Patrizia was serving her jail term, the girls were growing up. Today, they are both happily married. They live relatively quiet lives alongside their families in Switzerland.
Allegra Loves Boats Like Her Father, Mauzirio Gucci
Apart from just the wealth Inherited by both sisters, Allegra also inherited their father’s love for boats. So her passion for boats and current career as an avid sailor doesn’t come off as a surprise at all. When Allegra was born, in honor and celebration of her birth, her late father, Maurizio Gucci, bought a creole- which world’s largest wooden sailing yacht.
Allegra has been akin to boats, seashore, and sailing between the Gucci sisters. She started sailing dinghies when she was ten years old. This was because Creole was too big for her to learn. Her father bought her a smaller classic boat called Avel to facilitate her learning process. According to Allegra, her fondest childhood memories were on the boat alongside her sister Alessandra. She told Boat International that:
“Some of the best memories I have on Creole are the water fights that would suddenly break out on board. They would start as just a splash between me and my sister and by the end of it everyone would be soaking wet – owners, crew and officers. Quite often somebody ended up in the sea. It was great fun!”
Living up to expectation, the Avel and Creole have won numerous classic yacht sailing titles courtesy of Allegra and members of her crew. Although she prioritizes family, her love for sailing is potent. Even during pregnancy, she couldn’t stay away from sailing for too long. Now that she is a mother, she enjoys slow cruises because of the safety of her children. In addition to sailing and her love for boats influenced by her late father, Allegra also loves fast cars and motorcycles, which her husband introduced her to.

Like Patrizia Reggiani, Gucci Daughters Aren’t Fans Of The House Of Gucci Film
Despite the House of Gucci film’s recognition and applause, the Gucci daughters and their mother, Patrizia Reggiani, do not approve of it. Mothers and daughters alike have criticized the film and the filmmakers. The Gucci daughters even went as far as releasing a statement via The Times. In their statement, they describe the film as an “unfaithful reconstruction of strictly private family events.”
They further went on to describe the film as an invasion of their family privacy, stating that :
“It seems as if everything has been planned and edited to create a profit out of a tragedy without any respect for the privacy and pain of the heirs and their families,”
The members of the Gucci family have justly disassociated themselves from the movie. They described it as a false account of the Gucci family story that portrays them in a negative light. They also expressed their displeasure of how the film painted Patrizia Reggiani as a victim when she orchestrated the murder of Maurizio Gucci.
