History

Marella Agnelli was born Princess Marella Caracciolo di Castagneto in Florence, Italy on May 4, 1927. Agnelli attended the Académie des Beaux-Arts and Académie Julian in Paris, studying art and design. She moved to the U.S. in the early 1950s, where she modeled for and apprenticed under Vogue photographer Erwin Blumenfeld. Agnelli's neck became a point of conversation thanks to a now-famous photograph by Richard Avedon. Marella married Gianni Agnelli on November 19th, 1953. The newlyweds became an it couple in the European jet-set. No expense was spared in cultivating and maintaining their lavish lifestyle. Throughout the late 20th century, the couple mingled with European and American glitterati. After Gianni Agnelli passed away, Marella spent her time rehabilitating a villa in Marrakech named Ain Kassimou. Marella Agnelli passed away on February 23, 2019, in Turin, Italy.
