And it sounds like it served him right...

 

"In 1948 he began a five-year affaire with Pamela Churchill, the ex-daughter-in-law of Sir Winston Curchill. However, Gianni was unfaithful and became more blatantly so as the years went on. In 1952 Pamela surprised him in their bedroom with a young girl. She threw them both out and Agnelli, while driving the girl home, was involved in a car accident and grievously injured. His right leg, which had been broken before, was crushed and broken in several places. A plaster cast was too tight and caused gangrene and, as he had taken cocaine, the required operation could only be performed under a local anesthetic. Pamela was present and covered his eyes while the operation was performed. Gianni's recovery, which Pamela supervised, took months. Afterwards she became pregnant but had an abortion in Switzerland. Pamela began to give up hope of ever marrying him and, when Princess Marella Caracciolo di Castagneto became pregnant to him, Pamela suggested that he marry her."

FlyingMonkey, I knew uncle Gianni was one naughty powerhouse, but I had no idea he was such a prick. I must read more. Where is your quote from?

Probably an extremely scurrilous and unreliable one: http://www.geni.com/people/Gianni-Agnelli/6000000004580942402 but his Wikipedia entry has been heavily edited by family / corporate connections...

 

Some of the same information is in the The Guardian's obituary but prefaced 'Legend has it'.

Ambrosi doesn't usually veer quite that far into parody.

That's more sad than silly.

The jacket also has the very wide lapels that Signor Ambrosi seems to favour, too - they very nearly reach the shoulder seams.

If you look at his tumblr, his day's style is the bees knees.

I'd say I was born a generation too late but there was no Styleforum back then.
