Don’t mess with family stuff!
Prince Ottaviano de’Medici di Toscana, of the legendary Medici family, was outraged when he heard that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were planning on having their wedding at the Forte di Belvedere… which his family built!
He says he’s never even heard of Kimmy, but that’s not what has him upset. He explained the complicated situation, saying:
"The city is renting out our palazzi for small change to be used as dance halls. Events like this represent a danger to the cultural integrity and historical authenticity of the city, which is protected, and could mean a possible loss of UNESCO status or being placed on UNESCO's danger list. They are selling the city off and many here are disgusted… The fort should be used for institutional encounters, where heads of governments come to build cultural and economic relationships, as it was used down the centuries. And not as a ballroom."
The 57-year-old prince is the head of a conservatorship in the city of Florence and worries about several structures that have been used for weddings or parties recently, and he wants it to stop.
We can understand why he’s upset, but if the Fort was closed, like we previously reported, wouldn’t it make sense to make some money for it somehow?
