MILAN — Since he became chairman and ceo of Gucci America in 1984, Domenico De Sole has battled his share of adversaries — Maurizio Gucci, Patrizio Bertelli and Bernard Arnault — to name a few.
"Make my day," became his mantra the moment Arnault began his hostile takeover of Gucci in 1999. But contrary to rumors rattling around Europe, De Sole insists he isn’t locked in conflict with PPR owner François Pinault or PPR chief executive Serge Weinberg.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
