Gianni Agnelli's House (former)

Gianni Agnelli's House (former)


Turin, Italy (IT)
Agnelli, who died here in 2003, was the principal shareholder of Fiat and one of the richest Italians. Agnelli was the most important figure in Italian economy, the symbol of capitalism throughout the second half of 20th century, and regarded by many as the true "King of Italy". A cultivated man of keen intelligence and a peculiar sense of humour, he was perhaps the most famous Italian abroad, forming deep relationships with international bankers and politicians.

His daughter, Margherita Agnelli De Pahlen (whose Lake Geneva mansion is also featured on this site), inherited the Villa Frescot. Today, her son lives here, John Elkann, who is the new Chairman of Fiat.
