RIP Princess Ira von Fürstenberg


Princess Ira von Fürstenberg died on February 19, 2024, in Rome, Italy. She was 83. She was born Virginia Carolina Theresa Pancrazia Galdina zu Fürstenberg in Rome on April 17, 1940, and was Chiara Agnelli and Prince Tassilo von Furstenberg’s eldest daughter. Ira was an undisputed protagonist of the worldliness of the last century. Her marriage in Venice to Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, in 1955, when she was just 15 years old, was the first major post-war event. Ira, a restless girl, after having given birth to two children, ran away with the Basilian millionaire and playboy Baby Pignatari, from whom she separated a few years later. She spent part of her youth tackling the adventure of cinema and then dedicated herself to public relations in the fashion sector. Her only Spaghetti western was as Hester McDonald Morton in “Deaf Smith and Johnny Ears in 1973.
