"Nessuno come Franca Sozzani ha saputo immaginare una realtà diversa e raccontarla attraverso un esercizio quotidiano di gusto e fantasia. Ha dato al suo destino la forma che ha voluto e che non lasciava nessuno indifferente. Mi mancherà non cercare più la sua presenza nel buio della sala." "No one has been able to reinvent reality like Franca Sozzani has, illustrating it regularly in a tasteful and creative manner. She shaped things her own way and that never went unnoticed. I am truly going to miss looking for her in the darkness of the theater." - Giorgio Armani
