Padua, the luxury industrialist Renè Caovilla robbed at home by a gang of armed criminals: stolen money, jewels and watches

Big shot of a gang of professional robbers to the detriment of Fernando Renè Caovilla, 83, one of the best-known manufacturers of high fashion shoes worldwide, with boutiques in Paris, London, Tokyo and Venice. On December 8, at dinner time, two criminals entered the eighteenth century Villa Zanetti owned by the entrepreneur a Stra, municipality on the Brenta at the gates of Padua. They raided jewels and money, which they were handed over at gunpoint. In about forty minutes the robbery was over and the perpetrators lost their tracks by getting into the car of an accomplice, who was waiting for them outside the wall of the villa.

The two thugs took advantage of the alarm systems they had not yet been activated for the night. At that moment Caovilla and his wife Paola were at the table, but the house staff were also in the house: the industrialist found himself in front of the armed and masked criminals, who ordered him to deliver all the valuables. The alarm was raised shortly after 21 by the Paduan company that manages the residence surveillance system: if the alarms were not yet in operation, in fact, the cameras who guard the park and the villa. The bandits were filmed as they broke in with their faces covered by a balaclava and with weapons in hand. According to witnesses, they spoke in Italian with a foreign accent. They moved with coolness and precision, without the need for violence, and even took some away fine watches. At the moment the quantification of the loot is uncertain.

It could have been the same gang that has been active in the area of ​​the last month Mogliano Veneto, a few kilometers away. On November 14, the oilman was robbed by four people in his own villa Giancarlo Miotto. A few days later an attempt was made to raid Villa da Riva, a Zerman, where do you live Nicola Giol, which is part of the Venetian family that managed the Pam Panorama group for years. On that occasion the caretaker had foiled the blow. Third episode in a villa, also in Zerman, owned by the prince Sebastien Egon Fürstenberg, owner of Banca Ifis: in that case, the thieves had found nothing.

The Renè Caovilla brand has always been combined with luxury women’s footwear, authentic handmade and signed jewel-shoes. Nancy Reagan, Lady Diana, Caroline of Monaco and Sofia Loren wore them. The origins of the Maison date back to almost a century ago, which makes the brand one of the longest-lived in the world: in 1928 in Fiesso d’Artico, in the Venetian countryside, Edoardo Caovilla created the first shoe workshop in a land dedicated to this workmanship with great skill. The production began to establish itself in 1934 with its own identity. After the first generation came the second, thanks to his son Renè who, starting from the 1950s, began to give life to creations of particular value, beginning to establish itself internationally. Caovilla, together with other Venetian entrepreneurs, controlled the newspaper “The Gazzettino“Which was then sold in 2006 to Gaetano Caltagirone, publisher of the “Messenger”.
