Beloved Vogue Italia Editor, Franca Sozzani, Dies at 66

1950 – 2016.

Franca Sozzani was the quiet powerhouse behind Vogue Italia, and the much-loved EIC passed away in Milan on December 21 at age 66.

She led the publication over 28 years and was an outspoken voice including but not limited to the weight debate and a landmark all-black issue. She was a goodwill ambassador and developed the much-lauded concept store 10 Corso Como.

Her death led to a massive public outpour in love. Anna Wintour penned a memory on Vogue to her Italian counterpart:

“I think for the first few years we just circled each other, quietly. Gradually, however, show by show and season by season, Franca and I found ourselves falling into a friendship that I am so happy and honored to say sustained itself for 30 years.”

In her last year, her son Francesco Carrozzini immortalized her legacy in a well-respected documentary described to be: “a love letter between a mother and a child.” It is reported she died with her son by her side.
