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.
