Italian Shoe Designer Sergio Rossi Dies of Suspected Coronavirus

Famed Italian shoe designed Sergio Rossi has died of suspected coronavirus.

The designer was admitted to the hospital in Cesena. The city is located in Emilia-Romagna, one of the hardest hit areas in Northern Italy.

The footwear designer was 84 years old and had been selling his eponymous brand since 1968.

Rossi had donated €100,000 to the Sacco hospital in Milan just last month to support the healthcare workers battling the virus firsthand.
