House of Gucci is based on Sara Gay Forden’s book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed, and follows the real-life events in the 1980s and 1990s that led to the murder.

Maurizio Gucci was a former head of the Italian fashion house and the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci who was killed on the steps outside his office in 1995. 

His ex-wife Patrizia was dubbed the Black Widow during her trial, and was convicted of plotting his murder and sentenced to 29 years in prison in 1998, but was subsequently released in October 2016.
