Grand-daughter of Rosita and Ottavio Missoni, founders of the eponymous Italian brand, Margherita is the eldest daughter of Angela Missoni, the brand's current creative director, from her first marriage with Marco Maccapani.

The ceremony took place at the Chamber of Deputies of Rome, on 9 October.
