Gianluca Vacchi Biography, Wife, Girlfriend, Wiki, Net Worth, Age, Height

When it comes to social media celebrities, most times, we just find the young people probably in their 20s and 30s, but hardly 40s and 50s. With Italian millionaire, Dj, and entrepreneur, Gianluca Vacchi who has gone above the 50th mark, that theory doesn’t apply. He is famous for, among other things, his dance moves on Instagram, as well as his tattoos, vibes, and lack of fear of adventure.

Gianluca Vacchi Biography and Age

Described as Grandpa Playboy, Gianluca Vacchi was born on August 05, 1967 in the Italian town of Bologna into a business family. It was this that would go on to drag him into the entrepreneurial world. His father is the president and CEO of the Industria Macchine Automatiche S.p.A. (IMA). The company is into the design and manufacturing of automatic machines that are needed in the processing and packaging of pharmaceutical products as well as food, coffee, cosmetics and other things.

While it is not known how he was raised, it is known that he learned to play the piano when he was 7 from his Argentine grandmother. His mother also played the instrument and that made him love music enough to go back to it even when he has gone far in age.

Vacchi had his education from the Studiorum University in Bologna where he obtained a degree in Business and Economics. When he was 25, he joined his family business which he soon took some part and restructured them. Even before he was 30, Vacchi decided to go into shareholding and the buying and selling of different companies. It is that which would soon make him a very rich man.

An entrepreneur and Financier, among the offices he held, are President at SEA Società Europea Autocaravan S.p.A as well as a Non-Executive Director of I.M.A. Industria Macchine Automatiche SpA (IMA). Before retiring at the age of 45, he also served as the Director of Finance Vacchi Finanziaria Vacchi S.p.A.

It was at the age of 48 that Gianluca Vacchi decided to hit the social media with his moves and pictures. Describing himself as a global entertainer and celebrity, he said he doesn’t consider himself too old to do what he is doing. What brought him to the limelight was a video of himself and his then partner, Giorgia Gabriele, who were on a vacation dancing to a song by Ricky Martin. Soon, the video went viral and that was how he stormed Instagram.

Now, he takes the time to post different videos of himself dancing or working out or his pictures on Instagram to his over 11 million followers. He has also released a number of singles including one titled Trump-It which seemed to show more of his DJying skills than anything else. He began Djying when he was 49 years old, contributing to the reasons why he is referred to as the Grandpa Playboy.

Wife and Girlfriend

A nice looking man with all the wealth and full of fun, it is rather surprising that Gianluca Vacchi doesn’t have a wife as he is still yet to get married. He has, however, dated the Italian model, Giorgia Gabriele. The two dated from 2014 to 2017 when the relationship ended.

The two of them met in 2010 and remained friends until she became his girlfriend 4 years later.

Net Worth

With silvery hair, Gianluca Vacchi definitely lives what many can only describe as the golden life. Most pictures he shares on social media are only testaments of his luxurious life, designed by private jets, private yacht, and a lot of other things money can buy.

The Grandpa Playboy has a net worth that is estimated between $350 million to around $450 million. And no, he didn’t make his wealth from social media. Instead, a large chunk of his wealth came from his family business.

His family is said to own a lot of businesses and shares in Ima Group. Nevertheless, it was reported by an Italian news media that in 2017, his yacht and other properties including shares were seized by the bank following a debt he has been unable to pay back. The loan was placed at €10.5m (£9.5m). That, however, didn’t seem to slow the social media entertainer down as he still displays his wealth and dances like he has no problems whatsoever. As he has pointed out, he is no longer interested in making money, just moving with things that satisfy his curiosity.
