It will cast light on the subject, but I suspect it'll most likely be nothing more than a soft journalistic piece, replete with pictures from their latest couture project. I am assuming that kind of free advertising (along with some heavy handed editing) was the only way Anna was able to appease the duo. Like any of her magazine's fashion reviews, if they don't mention it, it didn't happen.

Dolce, Gabbana Found Innocent
Quote:
Not Guilty.

Italy's highest court on Friday found Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce not guilty of tax evasion, overturning two previous sentences at lower courts. After three hours behind closed doors, the five-member jury headed by president Alfredo Teresi also cleared the other defendants, including general director Cristiana Ruella, finance director Giuseppe Minoni and accountant Luciano Patelli, as there was no ground for a case.

Behind close doors? That is wrong in so many ways...

Well I'm certainly not surprised. They kept on hammering on and on about the unjust premise of the entire case, the Luxembourg deal, and how the Pisapia invited them to boost the image of the city.
I imagine Miucca and her husband will also walk off scot-free after their audit!

Stefano Gabbana, Domenico Dolce to Return Ambrogino d'Oro Award

By Cynthia Martens

BEARING A GRUDGE: Back in 2009 — a more innocent time, before “bunga bunga” and “selfies” entered the Italian vernacular — Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce had nice things to say about Milan. That was the year the city presented the fashion designers with its prestigious annual Ambrogino d’Oro award, named for its patron Saint Ambrogio. “Milan is not only our city and where our home is, but also the place that allowed us to make our dream come true,” Gabbana told WWD at the time. “Milan has given us a lot and we cannot be but happy that our work contributed to its well-being.”

But time flies when you’re facing charges of tax evasion, and the love story between the designers known for their Sicilian style and Italy’s fashion capital has long since soured. Last year, Franco D’Alfonso, a city council member, obliquely referred to the duo as “evaders,” and in response, Dolce and Gabbana closed their nine Milanese boutiques for three days out of “indignation,” threatening to return the Ambrogino.

Now, following the Oct. 24 verdict in Italy’s highest court, which found the designers innocent of all charges, Gabbana is not about to bury the hatchet. “We’ll give [the Ambrogino] back as requested,” he posted Oct. 28 on Twitter, subsequently retweeting dozens of supportive messages from fans.

In local media reports, Milan council president Basilio Rizzo has taken offense, saying that returning the Ambrogino five years after receiving it “would only be an act of arrogance toward the city that had honored” the designers, and that “had they wanted to give it back, they should have done so immediately, as a kind of self-protective measure, and now we would have given it back, with our deepest apologies.”

As they say in Sicily, acqua passata 'un macìna mulinu: it’s all water under the bridge.

Yes you do. Otherwise there would be no courts. There would just be "accusers" and a bunch of people in jail.


People have taken a very judgmental stand on this matter, based on the comments here. If a case is accepted into the Italian highest court, then it is obviously not an obvious case of tax evasion..."Tax planning" is legal. There is a very fine line between tax evation and planning, and I think very few here on tfs know where to draw it (even roughly). I believe tax appeals make up about +20% of the supreme court cases in my country, every year. Thats how fine a line it is.

People should not be so shocked to see that D&G were found innocent...
