Vittorio Cecchi Gori has been hospitalized since the end of December because he is suffering from ischemia. Ex-wife Rita Rusic talked about his health during the broadcast of Rai 1, La vita in vivo.
Vittorio is stable and constantly improving. He is very thin, he will have lost at least 20-25 kg. Yesterday I cut his hair.
Rusic said that the ex-husband is alone, everyone forgot about him because he no longer has anything.
Now there is nobody around Vittorio because there is nothing more to take, what had to be taken has been taken everything. Vittorio has nothing left. Have we seen statements from people? But they never saw it, they never came to see it.
He also described the journey made with his son to run to the bedside of Cecchi Gori, immediately after hearing the news of the illness:
We were afraid to land and find some news that was even worse than what we had received, especially when you have a black out of a flight that lasts at least 9-10 hours. We ran from the airport and went there. It was horrible – he continues – the feeling was that of finding a man who had been abandoned, not by us, because he abandoned us, but by everything and everyone.
Some time ago Vittorio Cecchi Gori told Storie Italiane, Eleonora Daniele's program, that he was alone and sad. The sons Vittoria and Mario are far away, in America, where they live with mother Rita Rusic. Her parents are gone. And there is no woman at his side: "There is no longer anyone – he says – to tell the truth, I was alone. I have always had a great life, but the representation that the newspapers give to show that one flutters here and there is not true, and suddenly this year, after so many years, I am feeling a little sadness and I would like to be with someone to be comfortable with ».
Looking back he thinks about his career and says: "Sometimes success makes you unpleasant, too successful is not good, success is beautiful but within certain doses, probably there were things inside me too that didn't go as they should but you have to take success as it is, both beautiful and ugly ». Then she goes back to talking about Valeria Marini, perhaps with a little regret: «In difficult moments that happen in life, the partner becomes essential and becomes the one who can support you and make you resist all adversities, I must say that in this Valeria it was wonderful. " Like her none ever. But who is Vittorio Cecchi Gori? Let's retrace his life, his loves, his career and his misadventures together.
Vittorio Cecchi Gori was born in Florence in 1942. Scion of one of the fine families of the Tuscan capital, son of the producer Mario, today he is 75 years old and lives on the sly. For most of his life he collaborated with his father in the family business, which dealt with cinematography. Vittorio has followed in his father's footsteps for years, producing some films that have come to win Oscars, such as "Il Postino", with Massimo Troisi, and the unforgettable "La vita è bella" with Roberto Benigni, in the role of the protagonist and of the director.
During the 80s and 90s Vittorio Cecchi Gori appeared several times on the pages of the Italian news, especially the pink one. His financial availability and his personality have in fact allowed him to weave relationships with some well-known VIPs, such as Rita Rusic and Valeria Marini. Thanks to the earnings obtained with the family production house, which became his after his father's death in 1993, Vittorio also managed to give vent to one of his passions: football. From 1993 to 2002 he was in fact president of Fiorentina, the soccer team of his city.
Vittorio Cecchi Gori's life in those years seemed perfect: everything was going well, with great successes for his production house. At the beginning of the 90s he also engaged in politics, first with the Popular Party, then with the Olive Tree. Towards the end of the decade, however, luck seems to abandon the Florentine entrepreneur, whose companies fall into bankruptcy. Due to his unclear role in the economic collapse of his empire, Vittorio is repeatedly accused of fraudulent bankruptcy and misappropriation of money, obtaining two different convictions, which bring him to prison for many years.
