All eyes were on Lapo as he resuscitated the Fiat name, romanced Italy’s hottest starlet, and brightened his company’s prospects with a sleek new model, the Grande Punto.
Since 2012 he is Executive Member of the European Club Association (ECA) and appointed to join the UEFA Executive Committee since 2015. Marella, widow of Agnelli's uncle Gianni, and Allegra and, therefore, Andrea, are both members of and old Neapolitan noble family that hold the titles of Prince of Castagneto and Duke of Melito, among others.
Since 2011 he works as a consultant for Ferrari, for whom he runs the project Ferrari Tailor Made, launched together with Luca Cordero di Montezemolo to let Ferrari's clients customize their own supercar.also, this makes me miss mistress_f :(If I learned anything from Korean dramas, rich heirs to an empire never receive love Until they meet a plain, poor girl that tells it like it is but loses backbone after the series hits its halfway point Unfortunately they only depict the heterosexual version of things I can't find the interview now, it's very old in internet years but he did an interview with Vogue way back where he talked about how he buys all his travel gear from an Army Navy store.It was very 'noble rich guy interested in simple living' lol. - Cops were called on Sunday to a public housing complex on East 28th Street in Manhattan for a report of unlawful imprisonment- Elkann, 39, stated he was being held by a 29 year old man at the location but officials found that to be untrue and arrested Elkann on suspicion of making a false police report- Elkann has had multiple messy incidents over the years including a drug overdose in the apartment of a prostitute that left him in a coma and the sexual assault of Uma Thurman in which he kissed her without her consent at a fundraiser.----Sourceiirc he'd been partying with a male prostitute & faked his own kidnapping when he ran out of money for drinks & drugs, lmao.italian twitter had me laughing for hours with their jokes & comments when this happened.Member of the famous Agnelli family, Elkann was born in New York City, the son of Countess Margherita Agnelli de Pahlen and the American-born Italian writer Alain Elkann.
