The Last Emperor is the story of Valentino’s life and career, charting his rise and his announcement of retirement in 2007 . It also share snippets of the bond between Valentino and his life & business partner of 50 years, Giancarlo Giammetti. And may I add, every phase in the Italian language just sounds romantic, even if they probably meant something utterly boring…
