An inside look at the House of Gucci Luxury filming locations.
House of Gucci is one of the highest- anticipated movies this year, and judging from the trailer, along with the title, we are in for a treat. The film stars Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, and the brilliant Al Pacino and will be directed by the amazing Ridley Scott.
The film is based on the true story of Maurizio Gucci, the creator of the glamorous worldwide known brand Gucci, who Adam Driver will play. Maurizio was murdered by his wife, Patrizia Gucci, who Lady Gaga will portray and follow the events in Italy in 1995, where Patrizia orchestrated the murder of her fashion royalty husband and has her sentenced to 29 years in prison for plotting the murder. The film is based on the book ‘The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed’ and has already been the centre of Oscar buzz and could well win for best cinematography was filmed in some of the most beautiful and glamorous locations.
As the film is based on the events in Italy, the film locations would be based in Italy. Starting in Milan, which is the heart of the film, the real Patrizia and Maurizio got married, where the Gucci company headquarters were based, and where the murder took place. The scenes were filmed in various hot plots in Milan, such as in the fashion district Quadrilatero Della Moda in Piazzo Duomo. There were some stunning shots from the historic Cortina bookshop. Some scenes were shot at the Il Salumaio restaurant, which oozes class and sophistication along with glamour. During filming, Lady Gaga stayed at the Palazzo Parigi Hotel & Grand Spa, a stunning hotel which the brilliant Pierre Yves Rochon designed on the former site of the historic Palazzo Cramer in the 1600s.
Another outstanding filming location is the widely known Lake Como, in the Villa Balbiano, a historic palace built at the end of the 16th century by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio. The Villa is the largest private residence on Lake Como, with six luxurious suites, which were individually designed by the famous interior designer Jacques Garcia; it also has a huge and luxurious outdoor swimming pool and a private deck. Some scenes were also shot at the legendary Villa D’Este, a 16-century palace and one of Italy’s most iconic properties.
Although the real-life fashion moguls got married in Milan, the wedding scene from the film was shot in Italy’s capital, Rome. The wedding scene was filmed at the Church of Santa Maria in Campitelli, and some scenes were filmed inside the original Gucci Boutique, which first opened in 1938.
