Guccio Gucci was born in 1881, the son of a Florentine craftsman. When still a young boy he moved to Paris and then to London quickly working his way up to the position of Maitre d'Hotel at the Savoy. And there, in one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities, Guccio observed and metabolised culture, ideas, style and aesthetical sophistication. When he went back to Italy in 1920, Guccio opened the first Gucci shop in Florence with a capital of only 30.000 lira. These are the humble beginnings of a trademark that has become a tradition.
