Giorgia Gabriele Talks Gianluca Vacchi's Mystery Illness

Earlier this year we wrote about Gianluca Vacchi's mystery illness. At the time, we wrote maily about his return from the hospital:

But the "GV" lifestyle was interrupted at the end of August, when Gianluca Vacchi was hospitalized for a serious illness, and narrowly escaped death in the hospital. While Vacchi has been kept the specifics of his illness secret, he has made statements that give us clues as to what may have happened.


Whatever his illness was, Gianluca Vacchi almost didn't make it. On his Instagram, he posted: "When you risk your life everything has more value , the grass is more green and the sky is clearer. " He also thanked brunette bombshell Giorgia Gabriele for being the one "my column in these days with her sweet love," getting him through the difficult period.

In that article we highlighted his return home and the hero's welcome that he received. You can watch the video of his homecoming here.

At the time, it was unclear what the illness was, but now Giorgia Gabriele has finally spoken about it. To Libero Quotidiano, she said that Gianluca Vacchi had been out, and when he returned he was trembling.

She took his temperature and it was extremely high -- and it wasn't going down. There was also a large area of swelling in Vacchi's groin/thigh area. The two decided to upend their vacation and go to the hospital.

At the hospital, it was determined that Gianluca Vacchi had Necrotizing Fasciitis. Gabriele said that in order to remove a hair or pimple, Vacchi had punctured his skin, and the streptococcus bacteria entered.

According to Giorgia Gabriele, 70% of people who contract this virus don't survive. Luckily, Vacchi did -- and now he's as good as ever.
