Salvatore Ferragamo’s daughter died in Milan at the age of 68

She had gone for the last time to Florence, her beloved Florence, in mid-February for the farewell to dear Settimio Cosci, the legendary porter of Palazzo Feroni Spini.

Then the splendid rooms of the medieval palace, the headquarters of Salvatore Ferragamo SpA, no longer accepted his creative vein.

Fulvia Visconti Ferragamo is no longer there, she died because of an incurable and lightning disease that took her away from her husband’s love, the lawyer Giuseppe Visconti, of the sons Ginevra, Consolata, Angelica and Emanuele, of his mother Wanda and of the Giovanna brothers, Ferruccio, Leonardo and Massimo.

Shee would have turned 68 in July. When Salvatore Ferragamo died in 1960, Fulvia was only ten years old.

Together with his mother and brothers and sisters he loved his family, faith and his marriage from which four children were born. In the company he held the role of creative director of all the collections of silk accessories for men and women, then scarves and ties that make so much of the international business of the house that only last Friday during the Board re-elected his brother Ferruccio as president and CEO and unanimously appointed as Vice-President James Ferragamo.
