Dotti and Audrey Hepburn
18 March 1938|
|Died||30 September 2007
(m. 1969; div. 1982)
Dotti met Hepburn (who was nine years his senior) in June 1968 on a cruise aboard a yacht owned by an Italian socialite, and fell in love with her on a trip visiting Greek ruins. He married her on 18 January 1969. Hepburn stated at the time that she and Dotti expected to have children together and she would consequently end her acting career to become an "Italian housewife". Dotti had one child with Hepburn, named Luca, born on 8 February 1970.
Dotti and Hepburn were married for 13 years. However, many of those marital years were marked by Dotti's frequent affairs with younger women. Hepburn stayed with Dotti until she decided that their son was mature enough to cope with the divorce. Despite their acrimonious divorce, Hepburn stayed in contact with Dotti during her lifetime for the benefit of their child.
