Gucci murderess freed on parole
Decides to work 2 years after saying she couldn't16 September, 16:56
Reggiani, 64, refused early release after completing half her sentence two years ago, saying she wouldn't know how to work as she had never done so.
She has now asked to work part-time for a Milan fashion house, Bozart, for the remaining three years of a sentence that has been cut for good behaviour.
Maurizio Gucci was shot dead in front of his office in March 1995.
Reggiani, dubbed The Black Widow, was convicted of ordering the killing and jailed in Milan's San Vittore prison in 1997.
When she became eligible for day release if she accepted a job in October 2011, she declined the offer.
"I have never worked in my life, and I'm not about to start now" Reggiani told Milan judges.
When Reggiani was arrested in January 1997 she was living in the upscale Swiss ski resort St. Moritz and enjoying a life of luxury as the wife of the last Gucci to head the luxury goods firm bearing his name.
Maurizio Gucci sold his holding for $170 million to a Bahrain-based investment company in 1993.
