Goodbye to Renato Balestra, the doyen of high fashion has died. He was 98 years old – guard
MILLY'S GREETING - The designer died on November 26 at the age of 98. The memory of Carlucci is moved: «Renato was a special man. I had known him and his daughters Fabiana and Federica since I was a little girl. We were a family. Renato represented a generation of men of an intellectual, moral, creative, crazy, unique stature». Even the rector of the church, Monsignor Walter Insero, who officiated the ceremony, remembered him as a man out of the ordinary: «At the age of 12 he read Dostoevsky. Until recently he devoured a book a day. He played the piano. He travelled. He loved fashion but also music, painting and theatre. He had taught himself to speak perfect English, French and German. He was a cultured, sensitive, generous, convivial man. Very ironic. He had great charisma and loved being surrounded by family and friends.'
