Gucci is pleased to announce that it is extending its commitment to preserving the artistic and cultural heritage of landmark cinema through a 2012 contribution to Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation for the restoration of Sergio Leone’s Once Upon A Time in America (1984).  To date, Gucci has donated over USD $2 million to The Film Foundation in its restoration of seven historic film titles.
