Lapo Elkann and Joana Lemos said “yes”. This was revealed by the Whoopsee.it portal. Elkann decided to get married on his birthday, October 7, in Portugal, Lemos’ hometown, where their fairy tale began two years ago. The “yes” was pronounced during a very confidential ceremony, in the presence of only family members and closest friends.
Lapo and Joana share a passion for social issues, as well as for engines: Joana has a career as a rally driver behind her, while Lapo Elkann and Fiat have always been an indissoluble bond.
Galeotta was a charity dinner organized in 2020 by his uncles in Portugal, where she lives. One of the many events of the Laps Foundation, of which Lapo is president and Joana vice president, aimed at helping families in difficulty during the Covid epidemic.
Immediately between Lapo and Joana there was an “enormous affinity” that affected both of them. Until the announcement of the engagement, at the beginning of 2021, when, in an exclusive report of the weekly Spend, Elkann himself had presented the ring, a unique piece in art deco style created in collaboration with Damiani: “Because they too are three brothers like me, John and Ginevra and are united like us. It is a ring that combines tradition and innovation , passion and love “, Elkann had declared. “The structure around the diamonds is in titanium, which is the symbol of our union because it is a material that comes from the world of motoring, so it represents the strength of the bond and our passions”.
