MILAN — Roberto Cavalli has been globe-trotting lately to celebrate various milestones and stores, but his next stop could be at a Florence courthouse.
Italy’s tax authorities have accused the flamboyant designer of tax evasion. They allege that Cavalli dodged fiscal responsibilities by booking $2.1 million to $2.6 million in charges to restructure his luxurious Tuscan home as company expenses for the fiscal years 1996 through 2000. Cavalli’s lawyer Alessandro Traversi confirmed the allegation, but a spokeswoman for Roberto Cavalli SpA declined to comment.
