House of Gucci

Character mistake: Paolo whines at the phone about his father going to jail when he's 70 years old. Like Al Pacino who plays him, Aldo Gucci was 80 at the time of the arrest. (01:21:35)

Character mistake: Aldo tells Rodolfo to reconcile with his son, saying "Sunday is my birthday." Aldo Gucci was born on May 26th, which was not a Sunday in 1980 nor 1981, which is when the scene would take place. (00:31:30)

Factual error: In the sex scene, when Adam Driver pins Lady Gaga to the wall, the map of Milano on the wall says "Mailand." Now there are parts of Italy where they speak German, but Milan is not part of it, so it's highly unlikely that they have a German map of the town (which wouldn't be produced in the German-speaking parts either). Since it's in her father's office, the map cannot be from Gucci's mother (who happened to be of German origin).

Suggested correction: It's very common in Italian offices to have ancient maps (replicas) with medieval/ancient names. Instead of an error, that's actually a pretty accurate reproduction of an average office.

Suggested correction: Her father runs a truck company; a relevant part of the truck driving business in Italy, Northern Italy especially, would involve transit through the Brenner Pass, through German-speaking Austria. It's not so far-fetched.
